Kemijoki Oy picks Metso for automation system work

HELSINKI, Finland 4/25/12 (PennWell) -- Finnish electric utility Kemijoki Oy has selected technology supplier Metso for automation work at two hydroelectric plants.

Three turbine automation systems at the 17-MW Inkeroinen hydropower facility and one at the 20-MW Anjalankosi plant will be replaced, Metso says.

Inkeroinen was built in the 1920s and renovated last in 1994, while Anjalankoski was built in 1983. Both supply power to the national grid.

Kemijoki Oy owns 20 hydropower plants, which combine for a capacity of more than 1,000 MW.
