PJ Valves wins three FPSO valve contracts in Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria
Under the Brazilian contract, PJV will manufacture and supply to a project in the Santos Basin, delivering a range of globe and check valves made from carbon stainless steel, duplex and Inconel clad material.
The valves range in diameter up to a maximum of 18 inches, with pressure class up to API 15000 to support the topside processing requirements of the FPSO vessel. The company will additionally provide onsite support from its Singapore office for the installation of the valves in China.
In Nigeria, PJV has been contracted to supply a package of ball, double block and bleed valves and check valve to support topsides on an FPSO project. Finally, PJV will deliver high pressure check valves to support a project in Mexico.
“We’re thrilled to have won all three tenders and to be working closely with our customers to simplify technical design, procurement process or both,” commented James, Moir, group sales director at PJV. “These wins prove our partnership model works – we support our clients to provide reliable, and competitive products that meet their long-term needs.
“This partnership involves challenging the status quo of ‘standard’ customer-supplier relationships and offers significant benefits to both buyer and supplier on a win-win basis. It’s brilliant to cement our partnerships and status in the FPSO industry and our focus is to continue to build these relationships through exceptional service.”
The valves for all three FPSO projects will be manufactured in PJV’s factory in Italy and partner factories in the UK, with deliveries due for completion by the end of 2019.
