Metso receives control valve order for petrochemical plant in Turkmenistan

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, a 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.

Metso is a value-adding partner for all project key stakeholders, including operators, engineering, procurement and construction contractors, and original equipment manufacturers.

The order is included in the first-quarter 2015 orders received by Metso. The value of the order will not be disclosed. Metso's valves will be delivered in August 2015.
