Honeywell announced that Riikinvoima Oy, a Finnish provider of sustainable energy, has transformed the operational efficiency of its flagship waste incineration plant in Leppävirta, Finland, with Honeywell Experion Orion control room technology.
Based on a human factor study, the two-position Experion Orion Console incorporates graphics that allow consistent operations, from process start-ups to abnormal situations and alarms. The console’s ergonomic design works to reduce fatigue and create a healthier working environment for plant operators.
The technologies are enabling Riikinvoima Oy to run its circulating fluidized bed boiler at an optimal level, meeting strict environmental regulations. In addition to the Experion Orion Console, the Leppävirta site will implement Honeywell’s Field Device Manager, which uses smart instrumentation to perform device configuration and management capabilities. It will also 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.
Riikinvoima Oy previously implemented Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager, the company’s flagship distributed control system and its safety solution. Honeywell also supplied Uniformance PHD, which helps customers make better and faster decisions by using advanced data management. Honeywell was initially selected as a technology supplier by global EPC Andritz Group.
