Customer case:

Stable and reliable electricity by Valmet’s CFB technology and plant wide automation system

Aug 15, 2019

Valmet’s CFB technology and plant-wide Valmet DNA automation system are helping Cikarang Listrindo meet the growth in electricity demand from customers. The boilers have been running steadily within a full load range. The reliable and accurate automation control system is the key to ensure safe, efficient and reliable operation. In 2018, Cikarang Listrindo decided to add another handy feature to its toolkit – Valmet DNA Plant Management Application (PMA). This application, which automatically calculates and presents performance, production, and consumption data, is set to bring further improvements to the plant’s KPIs.

We are very happy with Valmet DNA, it is user-friendly and extremely easy to operate. The main idea behind integrating the PMA is performance optimization. If you have measured and monitored information on how the plant and different systems operates, you have essential data for improvements. Of course, the reporting, which provides us with a quick and easy reporting system for our immediate needs. After the PMA was commissioned in early 2019, there has been no need for any manual calculations. All the data is automatically available to us whenever needed.”
