Veracel Celulose S.A. has awarded Invensys Systems Brasil a multi-million-dollar automation contract to supply Foxboro I/A Series automation systems, advanced process control applications, and associated services for Veracel's 900,000 metric ton per year bleached eucalyptus pulp mill now under construction in Eunápolis, Bahia, Brazil. The plant, which reportedly will be the largest single-line mill of its kind in the world, will incorporate process equipment, automated process control systems, and advanced environmental protection installations. The mill is scheduled to begin production in 2005.

As automation supplier for the Veracel pulp mill project, Invensys will provide the latest Foxboro control technology. This includes a large I/A Series system with all stations linked via a high-performance, switched-Ethernet backplane in a high-availability "mesh" network configuration. Veracel's I/A Series system will also use Foxboro's latest Windows XP workstations, new high-performance controllers, and HART field communications with remote I/O. More than 7,500 I/O points and 20,000 communication points will be integrated into the system.
