Metso successfully delivers and installs globe valves for China project
Metso has successfully delivered more than 70 Neles globe valves for Phase II of the Longyu Coal project in Henan Province, China.
The valves have been installed and their operation in extreme conditions has reportedly been ‘flawless’, helping to lower operating costs and minimising the need for valve spare parts and other accessories. This, in turn, means a lower total cost of ownership.
Metso has a strong position in control valves for petrochemical, chemical, oil & gas, and power customers through its Neles rotary control valves, globe valves, and intelligent valve controller offering.
Phase II of the Longyu Coal project in Henan includes two projects with a production capacity of 400,000 tonnes of acetic acid per year and 200,000 tonnes of ethylene glycol per year. Key installations include an acetic acid plant, ethylene glycol production equipment, a coal gasification plant, an air separation unit, a gas synthesis and purification set-up, sulfur recovery unit, public works and auxiliary production facilities.
The project covers an area of about 400,000 ha with a project value estimated at around $72 million (€54.5 million). The project is an initiative from Yongcheng County in Shangqiu in Henan Province to become a leading strategic player in China's coal chemical industry.
