Metso/Petrobras refinery service contract granted

Metso and Brazil-based Petrobras have signed a service contract covering the supply of spare parts and maintenance services for Metso’s valves, actuators and positioners for 11 refineries in Brazil. The contract also includes intelligent tools for preventive and predictive maintenance planning developed by Metso. Metso won the contract after demonstrating its commitment, valve quality and local service capabilities in a pilot program at Petrobras’ Sao Paulo refinery. Another significant advantage for Petrobras is related to the capabilities of Metso’s intelligent tools to monitor and analyze valve condition while the process is running. Conventional methods require stopping the process, and removing and dismantling the valves for closer inspection.
