Finland: Metso Receives Comprehensive Order Controlled Process Flow in New Power Plant
Metso has signed an agreement on a comprehensive valve delivery for Kilpilahti Power Plant in Porvoo, Finland.
Porvoo/Finland — Metso's valves will be used in conjunction with the power plant's three different boiler units to control the power plant's process flows. The new, combined heat and power plant will generate 450 megawatts of steam and 30 megawatts of electricity. The plant, jointly owned by Neste, Borealis and Veolia, is planned to be commissioned in 2018. Metso's valves will be delivered as a part of Valmet Corporation's boiler delivery for the project. "In power plant applications, durability and reliability are among the most important valve features because unscheduled interruptions in the continuous processes need to be minimal. The Kilpilahti owners are familiar with our valves, as there are plenty of Metso's flow control solutions in use also by Neste's Porvoo oil refinery," says Metso Flow Control's Jyrki Koskela, Head of Sales and Service, Finland & Baltic Countries.
The delivery to Kilpilahti Power Plant will include about 150 on-off and control valves. The majority of the valves will be manufactured at the suppliers technology and production center in Vantaa, Finland. The unit specializes in designing and implementing valve solutions for the oil and gas industry, among others.
