Neste Oil and Metso have agreed on the delivery of automation and valve technology for the refinery unit under construction at Neste Oil's Porvoo refinery in Finland, officials said on Wednesday.

Metso's technology is expected to aid Neste Oil with its targets to increase the output of high-octane gasoline and to improve flexibility in production. 

Construction started in 2013, and the unit is due to come on stream in spring 2015.

"Reliable implementation of the demanding controls and ensuring process safety are the most important requirements for automation. In this project, we will realize these with the help of Metso's automation system and valves, as well as with the HiMax safety system," said Jani Halijoki, project engineer for Neste Oil.

Metso's delivery includes a Metso DNA automation system, a safety system, and links to Neste Oil's existing systems, as well as automated on-off and emergency shutdown (ESD) valves. 

Also, project engineering, installation, commissioning and training will be provided by Metso.

Neste Oil and Metso have a long track record of developing demanding special applications in cooperation to match the needs of refineries. Metso's technologies are currently used at Neste Oil's plants in Finland, Rotterdam and Singapore.
