Metso announces valve contract with Saudi Aramco

Technology and automation manufacturer Metso has been given a substantial order to be delivered to Saudi Aramco's petroleum refining and petrochemical production complex currently under construction.

The order includes a considerable range of Metso's Neles rotary and globe valves and Jamesbury valves, including control, on/off and safety valves. It also includes the company's intelligent safety solenoid technology and valve controllers, which guarantee maximum process availability and safety while reducing overall operating costs.

Delivery will be made to the petroleum refining and petrochemical production complex of Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabian Oil Company, that will be substantially expanded.

Saudi Aramco is in the process of diversifying its business from crude oil into chemicals, unconventional gas and renewables.
