Valmet has received an award for being the most progressive innovation advocate for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry. The award was granted at the 2nd Small-Scale LNG Summit 2019 held in Milan, Italy, on February 12, 2019.

The 2nd Small-Scale LNG Summit awards acknowledge the initiatives, significant contributions and greatest achievements that make the LNG industry better, safer and more efficient. They are given to companies and individuals who have positively influenced the sector in every stage of the value chain.

This year, The Most Progressive Innovation Advocate Award was given to Valmet for enabling the small-scale LNG industry to become more efficient through the development of innovations.

Goal to become the best automation and software solution provider for the LNG and biogas industry

Valmet provides the LNG industry with automation technology and software that cover local level process control, operations and business management in the LNG infrastructure. Valmet's goal is to become the best automation and software solution provider for LNG and biogas industry players.

"This new award shows that we are on the right track for achieving our target. Valmet is a forerunner in developing solutions for both industries on the way toward a zero-carbon society. We are much more than just a system provider, as we master the control of the entire supply chain and offer a wider scope of automation and software solutions," says Jani Hautaluoma, Director, Process Automation, Valmet.

To make the LNG business profitable, real-time information is needed. Valmet's solution, Valmet DNA Integrated Operations, offers a unique way to combine energy values with process and quality data. A single user interface can collect all data to enhance operations and minimize human errors. Also, information can be shared with specific users.

This is the second time in a short period that Valmet has received recognition for its contribution to the LNG industry. In October 2018, Valmet was awarded as the leading global service provider for this growing industry sector at the Small-Mid Scale LNG Summit 2018 held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
