Valmet will supply a Valmet DNA automation system to three biogas plants owned by Gasum. Additionally, Valmet will supply a Valmet DNA Integrated Operations solution for centralized data collection and container logistics management to all of Gasum's biogas plants and gas filling stations in Finland and Sweden.

Valmet's solution brings efficiency and safety to daily container management. Containers are monitored with Yepzon's advanced technology, which features monitoring device batteries that stay charged for up to one year.
