Valmet to Supply Finnish Wastewater Treatment Plant with Equipment

Finnish machine-building concern Valmet will supply “automation and solids measurements” to the new regional central wastewater treatment plant, which is under construction in Tampere’s Sulkavuori in Finland.

The construction of the plant started in 2018 as a joint project of several Finnish municipalities. As reported, the Sulkavuori facility will be commenced in 2025. The aim is to reduce the load placed on the discharge water system, even when the volume of treated water will increase.

With modern wastewater treatment solutions, the plant can stabilize the sludge, treat wastewater more efficiently and meet the environmental criteria also in the future, the globally active developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services gave account. The order would be commissioned during 2025. Valmet’s delivery will include “a Valmet DNA automation and information management system, Valmet Total Solids Measurements (Valmet TS), Valmet Low Solids Measurements (Valmet LS), and Valmet Dry Solids Measurements (Valmet DS),” the concern informed. Additionally, the order will cover field engineering and instrumentation, factory acceptance testing, automation system installation, commissioning, and training.
