Bestobell Marine has secured two new high profile contracts for its cryogenic globe and check valves.
The valves are to be fitted in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) re-liquefaction systems that will be installed on two LNG carriers being built at HHI (Hyundai Heavy Industries) shipyard in South Korea for Knutsen OAS Shipping of Norway. Similar systems will also be installed on two sister ships being built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group in Japan for Elcano.
This is the first time that Bestobell Marine has supplied its globe and check valves for LNG re-liquefaction applications. The company has previously supplied cryogenic globe and check valves for re-gasification systems, including for the five Hoegh FSRUs (Floating Storage Regasification Units) that have been constructed at HHI shipyard.
