Bestobell Marine has been awarded two contracts to fit its cryogenic globe and check valves on LNG re-liquefaction applications.
The valves will be fitted in the LNG re-liquefaction systems that will be installed on two LNG carriers being built at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in South Korea for Knutsen OAS Shipping of Norway.
Similar LNG re-liquefaction systems will also be installed on two sister ships being built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group in Japan for Elcano.
This is the first time that Bestobell Marine has supplied its globe and check valves for LNG re-liquefaction applications. It has previously supplied cryogenic globe and check valves for regasification systems, including for the five Höegh floating, storage and regasification units (FSRUs) that have been constructed at HHI shipyard.
Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director for Bestobell Marine, said: “This is a very exciting contract win which could lead to new opportunities for our valves within LNG re-liquefaction.”
