US surge in cryogenic valve orders
Bestobell Marine has benefited from a major increase in demand for cryogenic valves in the US marine market, citing a spurt in orders for new dual-fuel vessels.
Bestobell Marine has supplied globe and check valves for the LNGPac fuel systems onboard five vessels commissioned under Harvey Gulf International Marine’s ‘Going Green’ project – the first US-flagged vessels capable of operating fully on LNG. The first vessel, Harvey Energy, was launched earlier this year.
Duncan Gaskin, sales director at Bestobell, said: “It is very exciting to have supplied the first US flag vessels that will run primarily on LNG. These vessels are some of the most environmentally friendly offshore vessels in the Gulf of Mexico, demonstrating Harvey Gulf’s commitment to sustainability.”
Bestobell has also won a contract to supply valves to two Orca Class vessels operated by Totem Ocean Trailer Express (Totem Ocean) in Alaska, which are undergoing conversion to LNG operation. Parent company Tote is in the process of converting its existing fleet to run on natural gas.
Bestobell’s cryogenic valves are specifically designed for marine applications and meet the firesafe properties stipulated in the interim IGF code, whereby all components must be able to withstand a minimum temperature of 925C.
