Petrobras signs Metso service contract for Brazilian refineries

Metso, a supplier of process-industry machinery for the pulp and paper industry, and Brazilian energy company Petrobras have signed a service contract covering the supply of spare parts and maintenance services for Metso’s valves, actuators and positioners for 11 refineries in Brazil.

The contract also includes tools for preventive and predictive maintenance planning developed by Metso.

Metso won the contract as a result of the good performance of one Petrobras refinery in São Paulo, which was serving as a test pilot for two years.

Satisfied with Metso’s valve quality and local service capabilities, Petrobras decided to expand the pilot contract for 10 of its other refineries in Brazil.
