Focus on energy efficiency


Voith introduces OnView.Energy, an innovative digitalization solution for energy monitoring that enables paper manufacturers to visualize, monitor and reduce energy consumption to lower their operating costs while minimizing environmental footprint. As part of the full-line supplier’s Papermaking 4.0 portfolio, OnView.Energy is based on the IIoT platform dataPARC cloud. With this launch, Voith strengthens its position as the leading supplier of digital solutions in the paper industry.

OnView.Energy offers numerous benefits for paper manufacturers. Dashboards adapted to the needs of the paper industry and intuitive analysis tools increase transparency and identify potential savings. In a clear cockpit, operators receive warnings and alarms in the event of unusually high energy consumption, and countermeasures can optionally be displayed to support the optimum operating mode and thus reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and costs. Automatically generated and distributed reports also support companies with ISO 50001 certification and save time and effort.

“With OnView.Energy, we offer our customers a new solution for optimizing energy consumption in paper production,” says Heiko Held, Director Product Group Digital at Voith Paper. “The customized dashboards and reports, optimized for the requirements of the paper industry, enable operators to identify potential energy savings and make production more efficient and sustainable”.

One reference project for OnView.Energy is Laakirchen PM 10, where the Voith experts have already successfully installed the solution. The intelligent use of existing data is intended to reduce costs and increase added value.

“Our collaboration with Voith enables us to exploit the full potential of digitalization in the paper industry and maintain our competitiveness in an increasingly demanding market,” says Thomas Welt, CEO of Laakirchen Papier AG. “OnView.Energy provides us with helpful tools to optimize our energy consumption, reduce our CO2 emissions and achieve our sustainability goals”.
