Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has contracted Parker Bestobell Marine to supply valves for the next three LNG carriers being built on behalf of Teekay.
These three new LNG carriers are part of a series of eight ships being built by DSME for Teekay. Parker Bestobell Marine had received orders for globe and check valves for the previous five vessels.
Duncan Gaskin, Parker Bestobell Marine’s Market Development Manager, said: “We are delighted that DSME has specified our cryogenic valves for all eight vessels in this series. We have a strong working relationship with DSME with a firm commitment to delivering our high quality valves on time and in line with their production schedules. This is a very important consideration for DSME’s LNG new build projects.”
Parker Bestobell Marine recently received a second major order with DSME to supply globe and check valves for the Yamal series of vessels, which will total 15 ships when completed.
