Gdańsk refinery to implement Metso’s device management solution
Grupa Lotos has chosen Metso's device management solution to optimise its valve spare parts stocking and supply. Metso's solution has been designed to improve the availability of critical spare parts for maintenance activities while reducing overall costs associated with stocking spare parts.
As part of the contract, Metso will also provide its onsite supervising service at Lotos's Gdańsk refinery to ensure that daily maintenance and turnaround activities meet company standards. The contract value has not been disclosed.
Technical director of Grupa Lotos Grzegorz Błędowski says: 'We chose Metso to improve our capabilities in managing valve repairs and spare parts inventory. To support operational processes and to keep high refinery availability, we need reliable equipment and good partners like Metso.'
As part of the service, Metso assists in maintenance planning, checks the completed maintenance and repair work done on Metso items, carries out testing on repaired equipment to ensure that it has been performed correctly and assists Lotos with all other daily and long-term activities related to Metso valves.
