Saudi Aramco orders Metso valves for petrochemical plant

Feb '14
Metso has received a large order to be delivered to Saudi Aramco’s petroleum refining and petrochemical production complex currently under construction. The order includes a considerable number and wide range of Metso’s Neles rotary and globe valves and Jamesbury valves, including control, on-off and safety valves. 
 
It also includes Metso’s intelligent safety solenoid technology and valve controllers, which guarantee maximum process availability and safety while reducing overall operating costs. 
 
The valve solutions will be delivered to the petroleum refining and petrochemical production complex of Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabian Oil Company, that will be substantially expanded. The expansion of the current facilities is part of Saudi Aramco’s plan to diversify its business from crude oil into chemicals, unconventional gas and renewables. 
 
South Korean GS Engineering & Construction is the main contractor for the project. Instrument lead Engineer Jang In-Cheol says, “This is one of the company’s biggest projects, so we need trusted partners to work with us. We have completed several successful projects globally with Metso. 
 
“They understood what we needed in this project and could provide, for example, with the engineering support and services we needed. We know from experience that Metso can provide reliable and high quality products that contribute to our goals in efficiency and environmental aspects.”
 
“The order is one of Metso’s biggest orders to the Saudi Aramco projects. We believe that this helps us in further building our relationship with Saudi Aramco,” remarks Sales Manager John Lee, Automation, Metso.
