Shipham’s giant gate valve

Commissioned by global EPC contractor, Technip, Shipham Valves has successfully manufactured a number of large diameter (28″ up 46″ Class 150) gate valves in nickel aluminium bronze (NAB) materials. These NAB gate valves will be used on the huge seawater intake pipelines that form part of the The Bahrain Petroleum Company B.S.C. installation of the new steam turbo-generators project. The enormous 46 in NAB gate valves are believed to be the largest manufactured from Nickel Aluminium Bronze materials in the world, towering nearly 5.5 m in height and weighing over 7 tns.
