Damaged valves were changed at the Neste Oil refinery in Finland

Neste Oil is the world’s leading producer of green diesel and owner of petrol stations in Finland, Russia and the Baltic countries. Moreover, the company’s refinery also delivers air fuel and when problems occurred on this part of the plant Proco services was contacted.

During maintenance, valves had begun to leak on one of the refinery’s oil pumps. Specialists from Proco Services swiftly blocked the main supply line using three valves DN400 while the faulty valves were replaced. The operation could take place with only minor disturbance to production and within little more than an hour the plant was fully functioning again. The result meant a huge saving for Neste Oil who could avoid a costly shutdown thanks to Proco services.
