Rotork secures FPSO actuation contract

Rotork, a leading valve, actuator and gearbox manufacturer, with branches in North and South America, recently won an actuation contract for application on a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO). The contract involves the actuation of multiple automated valves for critical topside equipment applications on the FPSO currently under construction in China for a South American oil company.

The order from COSCO (Dalian) Shipyard is for 188 certified CP, GP, GH and RH range pneumatic and hydraulic actuators, for installation on gas compression modules. Five automated valve packages consist of pneumatic and hydraulic shutdown ESD ball valves, on-off ball and butterfly valves and blowdown ball valves, handling hydrocarbon gas, liquid chemicals and seawater.

Close co-ordination between Rotork offices in Brazil and China enabled the company to identify and propose a robust and efficient solution to the demands of the applications, using proven heavy-duty modular products including compact CP actuators specially designed for smaller valves.
