Metso has been selected by South Korean Samsung Engineering to supply Neles globe valve technology for Abu Dhabi Oil Refinery Company’s (TAKREER) chemical refining complex in UAE.

Under the contract, Mesto will supply hundreds of Metso’s Neles Globe control and on-off valves.

Samsung Engineering procurement department vice president YunKi Sung said it has selected Metso as valve partner since their valve factory is conveniently located close to the company in South Korea.

”To ensure smooth startups, Metso offers its wide product knowledge and application expertise, global manufacturing facilities and sourcing, full expediting and inspection support, a global service network and comprehensive startup support,” Sung added.

The control valves are mostly equipped with Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controllers (FOUNDATION Fieldbus) for performance follow up and predictive maintenance, resulting in enhanced process efficiency and uptime.

The valves are scheduled to be deployed in a carbon black and delayed coker plant, which is currently under construction.

Scheduled to be completed in December 2015, the plant is located in Ruwais approximately 240km west of Abu Dhabi city in UAE.

The refining complex will process 30,000bpd of crude oil and have an annual production capacity of 40,000 tons of carbon black.
