Hydro automation retrofits

Valmet has a long track record on power plant revamp projects. The scope of works in revamp projects starts with an extensive site study, on site document collection, planning, engineering and a 100% FAT. If everything is ready the de-installation of old equipment and cabling can start. Temporary solutions for gate controls and water balance control will be used to keep the hydro power plant and the environment around always in a safe state. After installation and on-site test of all new equipment temporary solutions will be removed and guarantee tests will be done.

Automation retrofits

Valmet has developed a unique retrofit concept, which makes it possible to easily upgrade any existing control system for any type power plant. Existing system components, such as field cables and cabinets, can even be retained.
