Knowing geothermal applications
Given the breadth and sophistication of our Neles and Jamesbury product lines, Metso is able to be a single-source supplier of valve and automation technology to geothermal plants including control and on-off valves of the butterfly, globe, segment and ball valves ranging from 1’’ to 54’’. Using Metso as the sole supplier of flow control technologies helps our customers to reduce spare parts inventory and maintenance costs while also mitigating the stress of procurement and commissioning.
At the wellhead, control valves, such as Neles Finetrol and Segment valves are in wide use by many customers at the drill hole exits. On the turbine side, Metso’s soft seated Jamesbury Wafer Sphere valves and Neles metal seated triple eccentric disc valves are commonly applied.
We have considerable experience helping customers to size and select the right valves for geothermal service. The Nelprof® valve selection software is also available to help engineers with valve sizing and calculating calculate flow characteristics. Once in service, FieldCare™ Device and Asset Management software helps to carry out predictive maintenance with live monitoring of the valve performance.
High performance and control accuracy
We offer accumulated knowledge gained through experience from several geothermal power plants in Iceland, Turkey, Mexico, USA, Indonesia and Kenya. Reliable valve solutions featuring high control performance and control accuracy play a significant role in extracting geothermal energy from the heat of the Earth.
