Valmet is to provide automation technology for what will be Asia’s biggest biomass plant.
Phase two of the Dangjin 4 plant is currently under construction in the city of Dangjin, close to Seoul in South Korea. It is due to be commissioned in February 2020, when it will have a capacity of 105 MW and run on wood chips.
Finland-headquartered Valmet will deliver its DNA automation system plus solutions for vibration monitoring, plant performance, information management, fuel management and boiler protection.
The automation technology will enable the plant to enhance its competitiveness in the power market, increase its electricity capacity and produce more renewable energy.
The order was placed by GS Engineering & Construction (GS E&C), which is building the plant on an EPC basis for its sister company GS EPS, the first independent power producer in Korea.
“Valmet’s automation system is one of the best and most optimized solution for biomass-fired power plants,” said GS E&C general manager Seung il Choi.
