Finland-based equipment maker Metso is participating in a new permanent exhibition at the Museum of Technology in Helsinki, Finland. The “TechLand” exhibition being constructed at the Museum of Technology is a joint effort of the museum, 11 Finnish companies, researchers and other interested parties to present the story of Finnish industry. Metso says it is participating in the design and display of aggregates, mining and metal recycling processes as well as process industry flow control.


Museum of technology in Helsinki will open the new exhibition showcasing the story of Finnish industry in October 2017.


“We want to promote innovation and choices in the industry so that natural resources can be utilized more and more responsibly,” says Urs Pennanen, a senior vice president at Metso. “It is important to understand how minerals and the process industry are connected to the construction of modern society and how the circular economy works. Visitors to the Museum of Technology include people of all ages, and the new exhibition offers a great means to communicate the possibilities of technology through popular ways.”


Says Marjo Mikkola, the museum’s director “The new permanent exhibition showcases the role of industry, technical innovations and accumulated knowledge as building blocks of the modern society. The exhibition work is built on solid scientific expertise and a script based on current research in the history of technology.”


Metso provides equipment globally to the mining, aggregates, recycling, oil, gas, pulp, paper and process industries.
