Valmet will supply a DNA Automation System to Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto’s heating plant in Oriketo, Finland.
The new system will replace the existing automation system that has reached the end of its life cycle.
The system will also provide a remote-control connection to the central control room at the company’s Naantali power plant.
With a full heat production capacity of 40 megawatts, the Oriketo bioheat plant is one of the largest of its kind in Finland.
The order is included in Valmet’s orders received of the fourth quarter of last year. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The delivery will be completed by October 2022.
“Our cooperation with Valmet goes back a long way, and Valmet DNA is the main automation system at our Naantali power plant. It will be easy to integrate the new system into the Valmet DNA system in Naantali as well as use its existing operation, engineering and reporting stations,” said Maija Henell, managing director, Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto.
“It is nice to continue our cooperation with Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto and upgrade their existing automation system in Oriketo to modern technology. The same stations and tools in Naantali and Oriketo will make running and maintaining the Oriketo plant easier. In addition to upgrading the automation system, the project aims at improving the operation of the plant,” added Arto Mäkinen, sales manager, Automation, Valmet.
