DAILY BRIEF: 30 January 2020
Finnish industry picks up orders from all corners of the world.
All the daily Finnish business news that works: Tecnotree, Wärtsilä and Valmet make headlines.
Tecnotree deals in the Asia-Pacific, Wärtsilä adds a renewable option in the Caribbean, and Valmet delivers pulp machinery to a Turkish client.
Bmobile has selected Espoo-based IT solutions provider Tecnotree to transform its legacy business support system into the new BSS Switch platform. Operating two mobile networks in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, Bmobile will use the platform to merge the networks into one, cutting costs and streamlining operations. The deal is an important step in constructing a modern 4G/LTE network for the residents of the region.
Wärtsilä will deliver the GEMS energy management software and upgrade its Honduras-based client RECO’s energy storage capacity from 28MW to 38MW. The deal is meant to enable the integration of additional renewable energy sources into the power plant’s production and ensure grid stability. The GEMS solution uses data and machine learning to anticipate energy consumption and supply, offering much-needed foresight for power plants.
Process technology provider Valmet has secured an order for its defibrator system from Turkish fibreboard manufacturer Çamsan Entegre. The EVO 64 defibrator system is the first of its kind to be delivered to Turkey, and its value is estimated at around 2–5 million euros. The system is set to be online by mid-2020.
