Valmet will deliver a steam turbine automation system replacement to Härnösand Energi & Miljö AB in Härnösand, Sweden.
The order is included in Valmet’s orders received of the fourth quarter 2023. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The steam turbine automation system will be taken over by the plant in November 2024.
