Valmet To Supply Automation System To Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto

 

Valmet will supply a Valmet DNA automation system to Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto’s biomass-fired heating plant in Oriketo, Finland—with delivery to be completed by October 2022. The new system will replace an 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 MW, the Oriketo bioheat plant is one of the largest of its kind in Finland.

“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,” says 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,” says Arto Mäkinen, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet.

Valmet’s delivery includes a Valmet DNA Automation System, installation, commissioning and training. The new system is installed to existing automation cabinets in Oriketo and existing field cables are utilized.
