Porvoo/Finland – Metso will carry out automation and emergency shutdown system extensions to the existing Metso DNA system when the polyethylene plant is upgraded with third-generation technology. An extension to the independent emergency shutdown system includes a gas detection system for hydrocarbon leak avoidance.

Metso will also supply emergency shutdown systems for the aromatics plant as well as automation renewals for the aromatics and polypropylene plants. In addition, the operator training simulator will be upgraded with Metso's automation and emergency shutdown system. The project is scheduled for completion by May 2015.
