Valmet Oyj's press release June 10, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply automation and solids measurements to Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY's new wastewater treatment plant, which is under construction in Espoo's Blominmäki bedrock in Finland.

The order was placed by Are, the main technical building contractor of the project. The main project contractor is YIT. The order was included in Valmet's first quarter 2019 orders received. The value of the order is not disclosed. Delivery will take place in 2020-2021 and commissioning in 2021-2022.

"Valmet DNA is a reliable automation system for managing wastewater treatment processes," says Heikki Tanner, Sales Manager, Process Industry Sales, Valmet.

HSY's Viikinmäki bedrock treatment plant has been running with Valmet's automation system since the 1990s. Its Valmet DNA automation system has been updated, and in the future, it will be possible to control the operations of the new Blominmäki bedrock treatment plant from the Viikinmäki control room, too.

Information about the customer HSY and the Blominmäki bedrock treatment plant

Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY is a municipal body that produces waste management and water services as well as provides information on the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and environment. Its member cities are Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen and Vantaa. 

The Blominmäki wastewater treatment plant will replace the current Suomenoja wastewater treatment plant, whose capacity is no longer sufficient to treat the entire area's wastewater due to population growth and higher expectations for intensified wastewater treatment. After its completion in 2022, the treatment plant will process the wastewater of 400,000 residents from Espoo, Kauniainen, Kirkkonummi, Siuntio and Western Vantaa.
