Gasmet provided Tammervoima waste-to-energy plant a flue gas measurement system that has proven its worth
Tammervoima waste-to-energy plant in Tampere, Finland incinerates approximately 165 thousand tons of municipal waste every year, providing electricity and district heat for the people of Tampere region. Gasmet delivered the plant a flue gas measurement system, which is used to monitor that the emissions stay within the set boundaries. The system has worked so well that there have been zero shutdowns during the plant’s four year production time.
The measurement system keeps track of all the components that are required to be monitored by the environment permit requirements.
– For example, NOx, dust, SO2 and so on, says Mika Pekkinen, who is the Managing Director at Tammervoima.
– In waste incineration, the flue gas measurements are extremely important. If something happens and the values go over the environment permit limits, we have to shut the plant down for hours. That would be very expensive, he continues.
A system to look into
But there has been no need for shutdowns, as the system has proven its worth. Because of this and the good partnership through and through, it’s easy to recommend the services of Gasmet to others as well.
– Gasmet flue gas measurement system has fulfilled our requirements and we have been extremely happy with it, because no shutdowns have occurred during the four years we have been in production, Pekkinen says.
– We have been very pleased with our partnership with Gasmet, so we can of course recommend their services to other companies as well, he concludes.
