Innovative measurements and automation improve sludge dewatering
Oulun Vesi, a utility company in Finland, provides high-quality and reliable water services to the region and runs two wastewater treatment facilities. Most of the wastewater is treated in the Taskila treatment plant, which is the biggest wastewater treatment plant in Northern Finland. Valmet’s automation and modern wastewater treatment solutions enable Oulun Vesi to stabilize sludge, treat it more efficiently and meet environmental criteria long into the future.
|Challenge||The plant decided to build a completely new sludge dewatering system, as rebuilding the old one was no longer reasonable. A new system with modern solutions was needed to ensure the trouble-free and efficient treatment of sewage sludge well into the future.|
Extension to the existing Valmet DNA Automation and Information Management System and advanced solids measurements for the new dewatering unit: Valmet Total Solids Measurements (Valmet TS), Valmet Low Solids Measurements (Valmet LS), and Valmet Dry Solids Measurements (Valmet DS)
