SCA’s PM 2 in Obbola, Sweden, is the world’s largest kraft liner machine. The machine was supplied by Voith who also delivered effective commissioning training for the November 2022 start-up of the machine. Voith’s PapermakingAcademy and comprehensive documentation assisted the SCA team in optimally preparing for the operation of its new state-of-the-art facility.
Ms. Lisa Lundström Hämälä, Process Engineer at SCA, shared, “Voith prepared extensive training materials, and Voith and SCA together made sure there were several occasions for each training so employees could attend while also running our old, now closed paper machine.”
Voith’s PapermakingAcademy offers target group-specific training programs and courses that cover the entire life cycle of a paper machine and the plant’s components. The academy enables customers to use and operate their paper machines to their optimal capacity which during commissioning results in a faster take-over.
Voith also supports papermakers with in-depth expert knowledge to drive forward efficiency and lift their plants to the next level of performance. The course catalog gives information about all courses, the respective learning objectives, and the recommended target groups. This ensures that participants get the maximum benefit from training in homogeneous learning groups and that customers can make use of a comprehensive and unique training offering to educate their personnel in the best possible way.
Ms. Zahida Sakic-Kramer, Director of Design Main Sections at Voith Paper, stated, “The new training modules include all sections of the paper machine and cover its entire life cycle. This allows us to support customers precisely where and when they need it – and with the help of new, digital tools.”
Ms. Stefanie Schmied, Concept Manager Digital Training at Voith Paper, stated, “With the Papermaking Academy, we are expanding the previous training offered by the Voith PaperSchool, which primarily covered service-related topics. Voith Paper now offers a comprehensive course catalog – from basic training units on our new machines and commissioning to in-depth, application-oriented expert training of specific service activities.”
