Bestobell secures valve order in marine sector

Bestobell Marine has secured another order for its cryogenic globe and check valves, for the second LNG carrier in the Yamal series of vessels being built at the DSME shipyard in South Korea.

After successfully winning the contract to supply cryogenic valves to the first vessel that will be owned and operated by Russian company Sovcomflot, the company proved it had the expertise and capabilities to supply the second Yamal vessel owned and operated by Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL).

It will be used as a ‘test’ vessel to see how the ship and on-board equipment perform in Siberian winter sea conditions.

There will be a total of 15 ships built in this series for three different owners: MOL, Teekay (Canada) and Dynagas (Greece), in what is currently the largest single series of LNG carriers on order.

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.
