Valmet’s unique retrofit concept makes it possible to easily upgrade an existing control system for any power plant. Implementation replaces an obsolete or underperforming system with a transparent, modern automation solution. The latest intelligent automation features can significantly improve a plant’s performance, reliability, availability, energy efficiency and other key operational factors, while at the same time extending the plant’s life cycle.
Optimized control of all plant processes
Improved profitability with increased production quality and capacity
Energy, raw material and fuel cost savings
Minimized unplanned shutdowns and enhanced safety
With a wide range of functional features and tools, Valmet DNA extends control system capabilities beyond automation alone. Among other things, it provides technical descriptions, interlocking pictures and trends, troubleshooting, easy reporting and documentation.
This unique easy-to-implement retrofit concept allows the retention of existing components, such as field cables and cabinets. In addition, it provides for operational simplification by combining all standalone PLCs and other black boxes into one open DCS. The latest control system is more user-friendly and transparent than traditional automation systems.
Valmet’s agile retrofits are tailored to meet customer- and project-specific requirements. The standard retrofit delivery is a carefully managed migration that includes all key components, automation updates, basic engineering, installations and process support.
Retrofitting an existing automation system with Valmet DNA is a simple way to boost the power plant’s total efficiency.
