Metso Corporation is to supply a multilingual control room as part of a comprehensive automation delivery to an energy-from-waste CHP/district heating plant under construction close to Vaasa, Finland.
 
The new plant will be built by Hitachi Zosen Inova AG and run by Westenergy Oy.
 
The new plant will run on source-separated waste and have a capacity of 15 MW of electricity and 40 MW of district heat. The start-up is scheduled for the end of 2012.
 
Metso’s delivery will consist of a Metso DNA distributed control system and an information management system, in addition to on-site commissioning, trial run support, training and spare parts.
 
The Metso’s multilingual control room will mean that users will be able to choose between three languages according to their own preference.
 
The plant is located in a region where Swedish is widely spoken along with Finnish. Furthermore, it is being built by a company that uses English as its working language.
 
Westenergy is owned by five municipal waste management companies, which operate in an area consisting of more than 50 municipalities with more than 400,000 inhabitants.
