Emerson selected by Jotun to automate manufacturing plants

Emerson has entered a five-year framework agreement with Jotun to implement automation software and technology that will help paint manufacturer increase throughput and quality and reduce operating costs.

Jotun is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of decorative paints and marine, protective and powder coatings. Through its agreement with Emerson, Jotun will increase process automation and create a standardised digital technology solution for new factory projects, which will help the company achieve increased throughput, uptime and product quality, while reducing operating costs.

“In securing a long-term automation partner with the expertise required to support our journey, we will have access to systems, competence and support serving our needs when constructing and operating technically advanced and efficient paint factories around the world,” said Fredrik Urdahl, Jotun’s group technical director for operations. “Emerson’s advanced automation technologies and focus on providing standardised project methodologies, as well as global and local support, were critical factors in our selection for collaboration.”

Jotun will initially focus on standardising on Emerson’s modular, scalable and easy-to-use DeltaV distributed control system in new factory projects. The intelligent control will ensure consistent, integrated batch processes, minimising risk to product quality and enhancing productivity.

The agreement also enables Emerson to deliver a wide range of automation solutions to improve Jotun’s manufacturing operations. These could include advanced sensor technologies, data management and analytics platforms, software applications, predictive maintenance and remote monitoring techniques and asset management tools.

“We have a long track record of helping companies introduce technologies and processes that lead to game-changing enhancements, and Emerson is committed to helping Jotun realise significant ongoing production efficiency improvements,” said Mark Bulanda, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We will help support Jotun’s transformation efforts not only through our industry-leading portfolio of digital technologies and solutions, but also from our ‘project certainty’ methodologies.”
