Valmet has signed a global value-added reseller (VAR) agreement with Sirio Solutions Engineering S.p.A. (SSE) based in Prato, Italy. The agreement authorizes the new partner to sell and deliver Valmet’s automation products and solutions to end customers in the oil and gas, power generation and gas processing industries around the world as part of its own turnkey projects.
“What impressed us most about Valmet, in addition to the experience that Valmet has in automation systems, are the professionalism and the continuous search for innovation. Taking advantage of these synergies, SSE will be in the position to include Valmet’s technology into its solutions. Where required, SSE will be able to offer its assistance to Valmet as an engineering company and a field service provider, too,” says Michelangelo Guarducci, CEO, SSE.
“In our cooperation, we see especially interesting potential in cogeneration plants at industrial plants and rotating machines that can be equipped with condition monitoring systems, and in promoting our Valmet DNA Integrated Operations solution for small-scale liquid natural gas (LNG) as well as oil and gas pipelines and plants,” adds Kari S. Heikkilä, Director, Partner Business, Automation, Valmet.
