Bestobell Marine has secured an order for its cryogenic globe and check valves for the second LNG carrier in the Yamal series of vessels being built at 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, which will be 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 fifteen 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.
