Bestobell Marine gets order for Yamal vessel

Bestobell Marine has secured an order for its cryogenic globe and check valves for the second LNG carrier in the Yamal series of vessels being built at DSME shipyard in South Korea. Bestobell Marine has also supplied valves to the first vessel owned and operated by Russian owner, Sovcomflot. This second vessel will be owned and operated by Japanese shipowner, MOL and will be used as a test vessel to check performance of ship and on board equipment in Siberian winter sea conditions.

Bestobell Marine’s cryogenic globe and check valves will be used in the cargo handling system on the vessel including the main discharge line throttling valves that control the initial flow of LNG from the cargo tanks when pumping first starts. The on deck valves will be subjected to extreme sub-zero temperatures and the valves are designed to operate in ambient temperatures as low as -54 o C.
