Metso’s valve business, future Neles, has announced that its valves were used in around 250 major shutdowns around the world in 2019, to secure plant availability, reliability, safety and environmental compliance.

Services included specialised maintenance planning, on-time start-up and effective execution, ensuring the safety and availability of the plant until the next planned shutdown.

”It is very important that customers can rely on our know-how during a tightly scheduled shutdown project,” commented Sami Nousiainen, vice-president of valves services at Metso. “Having us as a reliability partner for shutdown planning secures that the right valves are maintained and that the correct materials and resources are available when needed.”

Metso delivers tag-specific service reports, test certificates and recommendations for future maintenance, upgrades and replacements to improve process reliability and safety.

“We currently use diagnostic data, performance data and historical maintenance data to determine which valves need be maintained during shutdown,” Nousiainen added. “In the future, we want to be able to utilise this data even more effectively.”

Metso offers valve services at 40 services locations around the world.
