Valmet Oyj has announced that it has been selected to provide the basic automation engineering for Gasum’s LNG operations in the Nordic countries.

Valmet claims that the aim is to identify the optimal automation solution for the collection and central control of all measurement data connected to the LNG terminal operations of Skangas – a subsidiary of Gasum.

Valmet claims that the order is included in the company’s 1Q17 orders received, but that the value of the order will not be disclosed. In the statement, the company does, however, note that the basic automation engineering phase has already commenced, and that it will be finished in early May.

Once this phase has been completed, both Gasum and Valmet will cooperate to define the necessary functionalities and equipment, based on Valmet’s DNA automation system. If Gasum decides to proceed with the system, then Valmet’s solutions would then be used at Skangas-operated LNG terminals in the Nordic countries.

Pertti Norjos, Chief Information Officer at Gasum Group, said: “The Valmet DNA automation system will strengthen our capability to collect measurement data and control it centrally. The cooperation with Valmet has started effectively.”

Jani Hautaluoma, Director of Process Automation at Valmet, added: “Valmet is today able to offer a complete automation solution for LNG operations. Our optimisation tool lets our customers reduce costs without compromising on safety or reliability.

“Valmet's strategy is for us to become the best solutions provider for small scale LNG players. Also, we want to support our customers by offering a wider scope than merely being a system provider.”
