Major infrastructure development projects

23 February 2012

Metso DNA provides accurate production information online, ensuring proper and rapid response to plant events and allowing maximum safety and efficiency in operation. Metso will deliver its automation technology to two major infrastructure projects currently under construction in South America: Belo is the world’s third largest hydroelectric plant in Brazil and the TUY-IV project in Venezuela is a dam project aiming to supply water to Caracas.
Both orders have been placed together with orders for Metso crushing and screening plants. Metso’s scope of delivery to both customers will include complete automation: Metso DNA will control and monitor the primary, secondary & tertiary crushing and the loading area. The plant can be operated by using graphic screens on desktop PCs or local control boxes spread throughout the field. The 11,233MW Belo Monte hydroelectric power plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in January 2015. Delivery to the Venezuelan dam project is scheduled for the first quarter of 2012, and project startup is expected to occur the same year.
