Valmet and Koja start Industrial Internet ecosystem cooperation to support energy producers’ operations and maintenance
Valmet and Koja have established an Industrial Internet ecosystem cooperation to support energy producers in improving the efficiency of their operations and maintenance. Digitalization solutions and data-based services will enable power plants to optimize their process by combining data from the equipment of both providers.
The cooperation combines Valmet's comprehensive technology and process optimization knowledge with Koja’s strong expertise in industrial air and gas handling solutions and fans. The companies’ solid expertise combined with plant data will boost proactive process optimization and predictive maintenance.
With the cooperation, Koja will become a part of the Valmet’s Industrial Internet ecosystem and the merged process know-how will help to solve customers’ process problems more efficiently. Koja’s service professionals can seamlessly cooperate with Valmet Performance Centers in joint customer cases. As the first step of the cooperation, Valmet and Koja are working together in selected pilot cases within the energy industry.
“This is a unique opportunity to get involved in generating more customer value for power plant owners and operators based on process data analysis and proactive actions. We have been cooperating with Valmet for a long time and our industrial fans are widely recognized by the international market. Adding the digital dimension to the traditional process expertise and integrating the competencies of both companies will help to serve the needs of process industries also in the future. Our expectations for this ecosystem cooperation are very high,” says Pasi Lähteinen, Director of Koja Industrial Solutions.
