Valmet and UPM have signed an extension of the existing maintenance operations agreement for UPM’s Platting mill in Germany for an additional three years. The value of the agreement will not be disclosed.

“Since the start-up of the Valmet-delivered paper machine PM1 in 2007, the maintenance team has been present at the site, providing outsourced maintenance operations services. Thanks to the extraordinary performance of the entire maintenance team during the years and the corona crisis, upcoming challenges have been mastered exceptionally well to this day. The maintenance team adapts quickly and professionally to changes and, thus, actively contributes to good results. It was a logical choice to extend the agreement and team collaboration with Valmet,” says Sebastian Loewenberg, general manager, UPM Plattling.

“The extension of the agreement is the best acknowledgment for the achievements reached together at the site over the years. We will continue to support the mill in reaching their goals by bringing efficiency, availability, and profitability to the best possible level during the coming years,” says Yrjö Ylitalo, director, EMEA Mill Maintenance Operations at the company.

In addition to the daily presence at the site, Valmet’s maintenance development and outsourcing services offering allows the customer access to its global network of technology and process experts 24 hours a day through Valmet Performance Centers and various industrial internet applications.
