Parker Bestobell Marine has released a statement claiming that it has secured a second order for its globe and check valves. The valves will be used in the LNG fuel gas system of the second ferry that is being built for Swedish company, Rederi AB Gotland.
This follows an order for the first Gotland ferry earlier in 2015. Once complete, the vessels will sail between the island of Gotland and the Swedish mainland, using LNG as the primary fuel. This will allow them to comply with the newest International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier III regulations.
The Sales Director for Parker Bestobell Marine, Duncan Gaskin, said: “China is where we are focusing a lot of effort with our local partner Healthlead Ltd, to ensure we are seen as the number one supplier for marine grade cryogenic globe valves, both for LNGC cargo valves and LNG fuel system valves.
“Our proven leak-free design of over ten years, with true fire-safe properties provides end users with the reassurance they need when purchasing cryogenic valves. We estimate there are over 35 000 Bestobell Marine cryogenic globe valves already fitted on ships, which is an amazing record to have and again provides reassurance to end users of the quality of our products.”
