Heurtey Petrochem selects Metso

Heurtey Petrochem has selected Metso to supply its high-performance Jamesbury® on/off valves for an upgrade and expansion project at the Tuapse refinery situated in the Krasnodar region on the Black Sea coast in Russia. Metso will be the main on-off valves supplier to Heurtey Petrochem, which has been contracted to manufacture and supply refining heaters.
Metso’s Jamesbury on/off valves were selected in order to take advantage of their proven high quality, reliability and long life expectancy, even under demanding conditions. The choice will help to optimize the plant’s safety and productivity while reducing lifecycle ownership costs. The valves meet all international standards and those pertaining to this specific type of project.
Metso will deliver more than 350 valves during Spring 2013. The delivery will include Jamesbury soft seated ball valves series 7000 and 9000.
Commissioned in 1929, the Tuapse Refinery, specializes in the production of motor fuel. It is the oldest refinery in the JSC Rosneft Group, the leading refinery in Russia’s petroleum industry. The expansion project, scheduled for completion in 2014, is a broader Refinery Modernization Program initiated by Rosneft in 2008. Heurtey Petrochem acts as EPC Contractor for the Tuapse Refinery Expansion and Upgrade project.
