Valmet will deliver a turbine automation system to Statkraft’s gas power plant in Emden, Germany. The new system will replace an obsolete third-party turbine controller on a gas turbine. Modern automation will ensure the future availability of the gas turbine to produce peak energy to the local grid.
The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the fourth quarter 2022. The value of the order will not be disclosed. New turbine automation will be commissioned in September 2023.
“Valmet has experience with several gas turbine automation retrofits. We are pleased to be Statkraft’s partner for the turbine renovation project in Emden and will be glad to support them to achieve their global targets,” says Johann Hilgers, Sales Manager, Automation Systems business line, Valmet.
