Good communication helps solve the issues of a one of a kind project
According to Arnon’s solution manager Lasse Jouppila, the project is a typical example of an electrification and automation project: When developing a new solution, numerous aspects require definition and clarification. But when information is shared continuously between the parties, surprises and challenges can be avoided.
– Initially, we specified the motors and frequency converters together with ABB, based on Valmet’s technical specifications of their tissue machine. We designed the drive cabinet mechanics, circuit diagrams and the busbars: how to connect the supply units and inverters, what kind of circuit breakers to be used, and what kind of busbars are necessary. Together with Valmet, we clarified the usage of safety circuits, as well as the requirements for communication to Valmet’s control system, Jouppila says.
– In this kind of made-to-order project, there are always new issues to solve, as the requirements are specific for the client. Together we can create value for the client and deliver solutions that fully meet their needs, says Patrik Tikka, product manager for frequency converters at ABB.
All in all, the cooperation was a success.
– During the project, we realized that working with Arnon was very easy, and the company is very service minded. Technically, they were fully capable of meeting our demands. I have nothing negative to say about the project or our cooperation with Arnon, Anders Moberg says.
