Metso Breaks Down The Language Barrier
Metso will supply a multilingual control room as part of an automation delivery to an energy-from-waste plant under construction close to Vassa, Finland. Hitachi Zosen Inova AG will build the new plant, with Westenergy Oy Ab selected to run it.
Metso’s delivery will consist of a Metso DNA distributed control system and an information management system, in addition to on-site commissioning, trial run support, training and spare parts. With the new control room, users will be able to choose between three languages by pushing a button at an operator station to suit their preference.
Swedish, along with Finnish, are the two common languages spoken in Finland, which is where the new plant will be located. Also, the company building the plant uses English as its working language, which makes the multilingual control room useful, Metso said.
The new plant, which is set for start at the end of 2012, will run on source-separated waste and have a 15 MW electrical capacity and 40 MW of district heat.
