Bestobell Marine has announced that it has received an order for globe and check valves that will be used in the fuel gas system on the second Gotland ferry that has been ordered at Guangzhou International shipyard in China. The company also received the order for the first vessel.
The two ferries are to be built for Swedish owner Rederi AB Gotland and will sail between the Swedish mainland and the island of Gotland. By operating on LNG, the vessel will be able to comply with the latest IMO Tier III regulations.
Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director for Bestobell Marine 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 LNG carrier cargo valves and LNG fuel system valves.”
