Metso's valve solutions improve safety, efficiency and reliability of GoBiGas plant, Sweden.


GoBiGas is a major biomass gasification plant for Göteborg Energi AB, Sweden. The plant is currently being built by Metso Power and is the first of its kind in the world. This plant converts biomass into renewable biomethane gas, using the existing natural gas grid for distribution. GoBiGas focuses on producing biomethane through gasification of biofuels and forest residues. The gasification system, together with the subsequent methanation and gas up-grading system, will produce high-calorific gas, biomethane, for distribution in the existing gas grid. GoBigas were looking to maximize process and operational reliability in addition to high production efficiency of the plant. They turned to Metso to supply the state-of-the-art control and on-off valves together with intelligent and safety valve controllers for both the gasification and the Methanation part of the GoBiGas project. Metso valve solutions with their intelligent valve controllers featuring performance diagnostics and improved diagnostics data resulted in improved plant safety and minimizing the operational and maintenance costs of the valves. Metso supplied Finetrol eccentric rotary plug control valve, Butterfly valves, Neles RotaryGlobe valves, Segment and Ball valves, 145 intelligent controllers Neles ND9100 and about 60 new generation safety valve controllers Neles ValvGuardTM VG9000. GoBiGas thus achieved its objectives of ensuring safety, accuracy, and reliability together with reduced process variability. DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP. WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR PRODUCT?
