Finnish trio land big deals overseas
Three Finnish industrial heavyweights have landed deals overseas that will see Valmet bring automation to a Chinese paper mill, Pöyry help set up a new power station in Hungary and Wärtsilä supply the PGS Geophysical seismic vessel fleet.
First up, Valmet has received an order for the installation of their online condition monitoring system at the Anhui Shanyin Paper Industry paper mill in Ma’anshan, Anhui province, China.
“The Valmet DNA Machine Monitoring system will increase the reliability of the mill’s production equipment by automatically detecting mechanical faults and giving early warnings to operators and maintenance personnel,” explains Harri Mustonen, director of Valmet’s automation systems product group.
Pöyry, meanwhile, will provide its engineering services to set up the Szabolcsbáka substation in Hungary. The assignment will offer its own challenges, as it’s an uncommon High Voltage (HV) substation, unique to the Hungarian Power System.
“Upgraded grid infrastructures are instrumental in adopting the future generation mix and to guarantee reliable power supply to all clients,” Frank Jarosch, Pöyry’s head of transmission and distribution points out.
And finally, Wärtsilä, has signed a service agreement with PGS Geophysical to supply its seismic vessel fleet with engines and other Wärtsilä equipment, while also offering maintenance services. PGS’s seismic vessels explore the subsurface beneath the ocean floor for oil and gas findings.
“With Wärtsilä’s advisory service and support, PGS is able to concentrate on what they specialise in – offering seismic services for their customers,” says Hans Petter Nesse, director of Wärtsilä Norway services.
