Klabin: Paper Gets A Digital Twin

Source: AVEVA

Klabin, founded in 1899, is Brazil’s largest producer and exporter of paper products and pulp. The company operates 17 plants in Brazil and Argentina and produces 3.5 million tons of pulp per year.

The Puma plant represents the largest investment in Klabin’s 120 year history and the largest private investment to date in the Brazilian state of Paraná. The plant churns out 1.5 million tons of pulp per year and is energy self-sufficient, producing 270MW of its own energy per day, enough power for a city of one million people. OSIsoft's PI System software gave Klabin the power to create a real-time digital model of pulp production at Puma, from tree harvesting all the way through drying. As a result, Klabin can make faster, better decisions, automate notifications of abnormal production conditions, and trace products through the entire production process.
