A large order for Metso in Finland

Metso has signed an agreement on a comprehensive valve delivery for Kilpilahti Power Plant in Porvoo, Finland, the company said in a press statement.
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.
The delivery is included in Metso’s third quarter 2016 orders received. The value of the order is not disclosed. Metso’s valves will be delivered as a part of Valmet Corporation’s boiler delivery for the project.
The delivery to Kilpilahti Power Plant will include about 150 on-off and control valves. They represent the newest product versions of Metso’s recognized Neles® and Jamesbury product brands.
