Valmet’s automation solutions for LNG and biogas

According to Valmet’s strategy, our aim is to become the best solution provider for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and biogas industry players. Both LNG and biogas industries contribute positively to sustainability and solving environmental issues. Those industries perfectly support Valmet’s mission to convert renewable resources into sustainable results.


The importance of LNG gas as an energy source is increasing. Traditionally, it has been transferred by pipeline from the production plant to the end-user. Today, vessels are used increasingly more often for overseas transport. The supply chain includes liquefaction plants, transportation companies and storage houses. A comprehensive software is needed to monitor and master all the information between all these parties.

Biogas is one of the main renewable sources of energy. The raw materials are agricultural waste and biodegradable waste from other industries. Valmet’s automation solutions are ideal for producing biogas from biological waste.

Supply chain control is taken care of with help of the Valmet DNA automation system where the information management system is integrated, HIMA safety system, machine protection system and operations management solution. Furthermore, we cover all related services with our new Shared Journey Forward service concept that includes Valmet’s Industrial Internet.

At Valmet, dialogue with data means that we connect our expertise and know-how with data. And data connects back and responds. Dialogue is connection with communication – both ways. With that combination, we are able to create new services for customers. Valmet DNA Integrated Operations for the LNG and biogas market is a good example of a dialogue with data, because we are combining data from different sources to offer customers new applications.

Integrated operations to further enhance the logistics

With LNG operations management, Valmet DNA Integrated Operations, LNG tanks, and truck loading stations can be easily monitored. The operations management includes reporting, metering and production planning, the ERP interface, as well as process optimization.
