PJ Valves (PJV), the specialist manufacturer and supplier of valves for the global energy industry, has been awarded three significant FPSO valve contracts for projects in Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria.
In Brazil, PJV will manufacture and supply valves to a project located in the Santos Basin. The company will deliver a range of globe and check valves supplied in carbon stainless-steel, duplex and Inconel clad material. The valves will vary in sizes with the maximum being 18 inches in diameter to API 15000 in pressure class to support the topside processing requirements of the vessel. PJV will also provide onsite support from its Singapore office for the installation of the valves in China.
In a further FPSO project win, PJV has been contracted to supply a package of ball, double block and bleed valves and check valves to support topsides in Nigeria. In this case, PJV worked closely with the customer on raw material pre-ordering requirements to meet project specifications and short lead times.
Thirdly, PJV scooped a win in Mexico where it will deliver high pressure check valves to support the high-pressure requirements of the project.
James Moir, Group Sales Director, PJV, says, “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. 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 company was awarded the projects for the standard of its design and manufacturing capabilities and its ability to deliver valves within short lead times. PJV’s strong relationships within the supply chain and experience in providing valves to more than 30 FPSO projects to date were also contributing factors.
The valves for all projects will be manufactured in PJV’s factory in Italy and partner factories around the UK – all deliveries are expected to be completed in 2019.
