Parker Bestobell Marine has announced it recently completed a contract to supply cryogenic Globe and Check valves for Hoegh LNG’s series of five FSRUs that are being built at Hyundai shipyard (HHI) in South Korea. The valves were made in Sheffield.
The valves were a combination of manual, pneumatic, actuated and check valves in sizes DN15 to DN100. They were approved by the Class society DNV.
Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director at Parker Bestobell Marine, commented: “Supplying cryogenic valves for FSRUs is a growing part of our business, as international markets recognise the greater speed of construction of an FSRU and cost savings from storing and distributing LNG in this way. We have full type approval from the four main Class societies, so safety and durability of our valves is assured.”
In the past, Bestobell supplied the Excelerate FSRU. The company also manufactured the same type of valves for the huge Q-Max size FSRU being built for MOL (Mitsui O.S.K Lines).
