AI-based MP INtelligence solution to monitor Stockholm Exergi’s energy production in Stockholm, Sweden

 

Stockholm Exergi has deployed Maintpartner’s MP INtelligence Anomaly Detection Solution to monitor its heat and power generation in the greater Stockholm area. The purpose of the system is to prevent unplanned downtime and improve process performance by detecting anomalies at an early stage. The system does this by continuously analysing thousands of signals and using advanced machine learning algorithms to recognize deviations. By identifying deviations early, errors can be corrected in good time and the risk of downtime in production can be avoided.

Stockholm Exergi provides district heating to 800,000 households in the Stockholm region. The system has been implemented during spring and summer and is used on all of Stockholm Exergi's production facilities. In addition to three power plants, MP INtelligence also monitors heat pump plants that recover both heating and cooling from seawater and effluent. By developing the use of AI technology in district heating production, Stockholm Exergi is now taking an important step in its digitalisation.

- This is an important investment and a big step for us to become more data-driven in our production. The new technology gives us a valuable opportunity to shift from reactiveness to being one step ahead, says Jörgen Espeling, Acting Chief of Production and Distribution at Stockholm Exergi.

- In the past, we have received warnings when different subsystems go beyond the alarm limits, then emergency maintenance is often required and in the worst case we need to stop the plant at an inconvenient time. With the earlier warnings, we can take less measures during operation or at least plan maintenance optimized time-wise with the production planning. It becomes more resource and cost effective. We have already seen real results with the investment, understanding that the system becomes even better the more you use it, so we have great expectations on development going forward, continues Espeling.

- MP INtelligence has proven that significant benefits are achievable in the energy sector with analytics powered by machine learning. We are very pleased that Stockholm Exergi has chosen Maintpartner as their partner to work together for the energy security and efficiency in the Stockholm region, says Jari Salminen, President of Maintpartner’s Productivity and Digital Solutions.

The goal of Stockholm Exergi is to have an environmentally sound, secure supply of energy at the lowest possible total cost, aided by the latest digitalisation and automation solutions.

Fortum and Maintpartner agree on continuation of Meri-Pori power plant O&M partnership

Fortum and Maintpartner have extended the Meri-Pori power plant operation and maintenance partnership agreement until the end of 2023. Maintpartner's employees are responsible for the daily operation and maintenance of the plant and its small maintenance projects.

"Maintpartner has reliably kept the Meri-Pori plant in good working order. With the new agreement, we will provide more market-driven flexibility in operation and maintenance, which we believe will benefit both parties," says Vesa Maso, Head of Thermal at Fortum.

“Maintpartner is grateful to be able to continue its important role in power generation and security of supply in close cooperation with Fortum.

Versowood selected Maintpartner to take responsibility over the maintenance of their Vierumäki, Finland plant

Versowood, a Finland-based sawn timber producer, has selected Maintpartner as its partner to be in charge of the maintenance of Vierumäki plant. The goal of shifting to the partnership model is to update the operating model and run systematic maintenance operations.

The contract enters into force and the 29-person maintenance staff at the mill will transfer to Maintpartner on 1 October.

Versowood is Finland's largest private forest industry group manufacturing a wide range of wood-based products. Vierumäki is their largest site, which includes two sawmill lines, glulam plant, pole division, pellet mill, as well as thermal energy and further processing plants. The 110-hectare production area has about three hundred workers. The Group has a turnover of approximately EUR 400 million and employs some 800 people in total.

“With this solution, we are seeking a new operating model for the entire unit. In today's world, it is important that production efficiency is constantly increasing. We have strong growth goals for the coming years, particularly at Vierumäki, and we believe that outsourcing is now the right solution for achieving the best and most cost-effective maintenance,” comments Ville Kopra, CEO of Versowood Group.

“We are very pleased with Versowood's trust and selection. Maintpartner has a solid track record of operating and maintaining various types of plants and projects, and has over a thousand industry professionals in Finland, so we are the right partner for Versowood to develop maintenance more efficient, systematic and proactive,” says Pasi Tolppanen, CEO of Maintpartner Group.

To develop its operations, Maintpartner places its own experienced professionals to Vierumäki: a maintenance manager and foreman, and, for the first year, a development engineer to support the development work.

The contract has a minimum duration of three years.
