Orora Limited, a leading supplier of packaging products and services,  renewed a multi-year service agreement with Valmet for the supply of maintenance and technology services for board making line ‘B9’ at Orora’s Botany Mill in New South Wales, Australia.

According to the announcement, the scope of maintenance outsourcing agreement includes a ‘Booster Package’ targeting clear and systematic development of planned and unplanned downtime to best in class levels. The maintenance agreement also includes comprehensive automation services, enabling the maintenance team to monitor the process, perform troubleshooting and corrections remotely, and utilize the acquired data to optimize the process operation through the Valmet Industrial Internet.

Orora’s Botany Mill is located in Botany, New South Wales. It  produces high quality recycled packaging paper, which is primarily converted into corrugated board by Orora’s Fibre Packaging business in Australia and New Zealand. Valmet supplied the complete B9 containerboard line in 2012 and took full responsibility for establishing the maintenance operations, mill maintenance services, management of several improvement projects and the mill utilities since start-up.

Earlier Orora invested USD 25 million into development of the company’s manufacturing capabilities in New Zealand
