LONDON – Valvestock has supplied high-specification components for installation in a new 140-person accommodation module being built by Sembmarine SLP for a major oil company.
The module, soon to be deployed in the North Sea off Scotland, includes living accommodation, canteens, a gym, hospital facilities, and a helicopter landing pad. The completed structure is due to be transported from Lowestoft by sea in May.
Valvestock has supplied all manual butterfly valves, ball valves, double-block and bleed, gate valves, and globe valves required for the seawater cooling system, potable water, instrument air, plant air, and fire-water circuits. It also provided pressure regulating valves for use on the facility’s calorifier and fire-water main.
The services provided by the company included quotation, consolidation of the complete valve package, documentation compliance, and consultation on materials selection and suitability for the application. It also provided specialist support during commissioning.
A major part of the order consisted of industrial valves, including Apollo stainless steel ball valves, aluminium-bronze ball valves, high-performance butterfly valves, aluminium-bronze gate and globe valves, stainless steel and aluminium bronze double block and bleed valves, and stainless steel and aluminium bronze pressure regulating valves.
Subject to weather conditions, the platform is due to be towed from dock and deployed at its final destination off the coast of Scotland on May 2.
