• Leading sustainable packaging company DS Smith invests in new contract to futureproof operations and further strengthen cyber security functionality;
• ABB to deliver distributed control system (DCS) and paper machine drives upgrade at Kemsley Paper Mill, Kent, UK.

The Kent mill is the second largest recovered fiber-based paper operation in Europe, boasting an annual production capacity of over 840,000 tons. Aligning with the company’s focus on recycling and sustainable paper and packaging production, the mill produces the first recycled, lightweight paper manufactured in the UK. This includes White Liner A, White Liner B, Dual Use, Dual Use HP Plus, Light Medium Plus, Liner 3 and Plasterboard Liners.

ABB is supporting the mill’s evolution with the ABB Ability™ System 800xA distributed control system (DCS) and paper machine drives upgrade across PM3, PM4 and PM6. The upgraded DCS will be integrated across the mill, working as the backbone that connects everything securely into one system for better, more automated functionality and easier maintenance.

ABB will also deliver a one-year support contract, the latest cyber security set up and two new Virtual Measurements for PM4, which will provide online calculations for strength and weight. System delivery is expected in Q3 2022. A progressive implementation of the system will align with the planned maintenance program in successive months.
