Finland-headed energy and forest industry technology major Valmet Oyj has launched Valmet Fleet Management Agreements, its latest services offering for the energy industry to serve their full fleet of boilers in several locations and "recharge" their competitiveness. A first fleet management agreement has already been signed with an undisclosed European energy client.
According to Valmet, with its Valmet Fleet Management Agreements, the customers’ boiler fleet can be recharged including shutdown activities with inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) measurements, performance evaluation and reporting, as well as pre-shutdown activities and plant development after the shutdown during the extension of the agreement.
Our experts help driving our customers’ plant development forward. We have developed our agreements to help our customers meet today’s challenges and improve their business profit with a long-term perspective. For example, preventive maintenance can help to reduce maintenance costs, said Robert Kölby, Global Product Manager, Performance Agreements, Energy and Environmental Services, Valmet.
With an agreement, Valmet establishes a solid foundation for long-term cooperation, maintenance, and improvement of the customers’ plant’s availability and efficiency, in a cost-effective way. During spring 2018, Valmet signed the first fleet management agreement with an undisclosed energy customer in Europe.
Valmet helps energy producers to recharge their business operations by securing reliability and improve the performance of the assets. On a shared journey forward we believe that building trust and partnerships are the key ingredients to mutual success. A Valmet Fleet Management Agreement is a good example where parties set a wider and longer-term collaboration framework with targets to maximize the performance of the boiler fleet, said Owe Asp, Vice President, Energy and Environmental Services, Valmet.
