A Finnish provider of sustainable energy transformed the operational efficiency of its waste incineration plant in Leppävirta, Finland, with control room technology.

Honeywell’s two-position Experion Orion console incorporates intuitive graphics that allow safer, faster and more consistent operations from process start-ups to abnormal situations and alarms. Its ergonomic design reduces fatigue and creates a healthier working environment as well as higher situational awareness for plant operators.

These technologies are enabling Riikinvoima Oy to run its circulating fluidized bed boiler at an optimal level while meeting strict environmental regulations. The Leppävirta site will also implement Honeywell’s Field Device Manager, which uses smart instrumentation to perform device configuration and management capabilities. The company will add Control Performance Monitor, an application that monitors, diagnoses and remedies control asset issues, allowing Riikinvoima Oy to detect problems and predict maintenance needs as early as possible.
