Hubli, India based Weir BDK will supply Indian EPC contractor M/S Tata Projects with £1.4 million (€1.6 million) worth of butterfly valves.
The valves will be installed in the Sri Damodaram Sanjeeviah thermal power station, a coal-based facility with 1600MW capacity near Andhra Pradesh. As part of the new contract, Weir BDK is working closely with M/S Tata Projects to ensure optimal service life on the new valves, and improve efficiencies across the power station.
A range of specialised butterfly valves with sizes up to 2900mm make up the order. The butterfly valves feature hydraulic cylinders which are custom designed to deliver resilience in high temperature applications, and dependable service-life.
Weir BDK has more than 30 years’ experience in delivering flow control solutions to industries including power, chemical, refineries, pharmaceutical and fertilisers. Specialising in standard and engineered valves, it is part of the Weir Group.
“This is a milestone order for Weir BDK as our engineers are pioneering the largest butterfly valves we’ve ever supplied for a thermal power project. We are fully embracing the opportunity to work in partnership with M/S Tata Projects, who are such an influential EPC within the market,” said Weir Group’s general manager for domestic sales.
2017 has been a busy year for Weir BDK, the company recently announced the achievement of API6D certification to serve oil and gas customers globally, as well as receiving end user approvals from both KOC and Q-Chem.
“Looking forward we believe successful delivery of this project will continue to grow our credentials in supporting our power sector customers globally, and I am particularly proud of the progress our team has made in 2017,” the representative from Weir BDK continued.
“Quality assurance and lifetime maintenance costs are vital issues for power generation customers. Isolation valves are crucial to the optimal operation and performance of plants, so we have invested in the Weir BDK range for customers who are focused on that essential performance, longevity, and low operation costs without compromising on engineering standards.”
