Vaskiluodon Voima CHP plant in line for Metso retrofit

Finnish power producer Vaskiluodon Voima has agreed with Metso on an extensive automation retrofit for a CHP plant in Seinäjoki, Finland replacing the automation system the plant has used since 1989.

Metso will install its DNA automation system as well as new automation for the fuel reception, water plant, auxiliary boiler and ash handling. It will also provide an update to the reporting system, an emission monitoring application in line with Europe’s 2010 Industrial Emission Directive, and new combustion control methods.

Metso expects to complete the work by August 2014.

The Seinäjoki power plant supplies local electricity and district heat with a boiler capacity (steam capacity) of 299 MW, turbine electrical capacity of 125 MW and district heat capacity of 100 MW. The plant’s primary fuels are wood chips and peat, with coal used as a backup fuel.
