Online quality measurement of forest energy on UPM-Kymmene Oyj’s Kaipola power plant

UPM-Kymmene Oyj hosted a guest event on Kaipola power plant 7.5.2015. Presentations were given about UPM’s forest energy procurement and delivery chain, forest energy quality control and measuring in the future. Day included familiarisation to Inray Fuel quality measurement system and at the same time customer experiences were heard about how system has affected on Jokilaakso power plants’ functionality. 50 forest energy industry professionals from e.g. energy and forest companies attended the event.

Inray Fuel measures every forest fuel load arriving to the crushing station. When arriving the driver starts the measurement and instantly after finishing unloading he receives information about truckload’s energy content as well as moisture and foreign matter concentrations. With reliable load-specific quality information, significant saves can be achieved for the whole production chain.
