Metso has received a large control valve order for Turkmenistan’s national oil and gas company Turkmengas’s petrochemical plant project. The delivery includes standard and severe service globe valves and butterfly valves ranging in size from 1/2″ to 20″ from the Neles® and Jamesbury® product portfolios. Metso is also providing Neles® ND9000 intelligent valve controllers, which have the capability for advanced performance follow-up.
The order for the plant was placed by Hyundai Engineering Co., the Korean engineering, procurement and construction company that provides engineering and construction solutions for plant projects. Once operational in 2018, Turkmengas’s petrochemical plant project will primarily produce high-density polyethylene and polypropylene by using natural gas. The value of the order will not be disclosed. Metso’s valves will be delivered in August 2015.
“We are glad that Hyundai Engineering relies on our expertise. We have delivered valve solutions to more than 100 projects led by Korean EPC companies. Metso’s valves are widely used in petrochemical processes; today, about 40% of world’s polyolefin is flowing through our valves”, says Markus Hauhia, director, Globe Valves, Metso.
