Bestobell makes headway in China

29 July 2015 | Read

Bestobell Marine has secured two major new contracts with Chinese shipyards.

The first contract will see the company supply cryogenic valves to the Guangzhou Shipyard International, China for use in a new ferry’s LNG fuel gas system. The second contract involves Bestobell Marine producing its small cryogenic miniature needle globe valves for the Hudong shipyard in Shanghai, where they will be installed on four 174K Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Carriers.

It is the first time Bestobell Marine’s cryogenic valves will be fitted within a fuel gas system for a Chinese-built project, making it another milestone for the Sheffield-based company. By operating on LNG, the vessel will significantly reduce its sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions, as well as lowering carbon dioxide output. This will ensure compliance with the latest International Maritime Organisation Tier III regulations, which restrict nitrogen oxide emissions from marine diesel engines.

The ferry will be built for Swedish owner Rederi AB Gotland and once completed, will sail between the Swedish mainland and the island of Gotland.

Bestobell Marine’s second contract requires it to provide valves for LNG Carriers bui...

Japan's First High Pressure Fuel Gas System

29 July 2015 | Read

Bestobell Marine has received an new order to supply its globe and check valves for Japan’s first high pressure fuel gas system that will be installed within a marine vessel.

The order will see Bestobell Marine supply a number of its cryogenic globe and check valves to be installed in two sister ships being built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group in Japan for Elcano.

Bestobell Marine’s valves are required for the carrier’s MAN ME-GI engines, where natural gas is injected into the engine at over 300bar pressure. MAN has sold over 100 of these types of engines in the past two years, driving a rapid increase in demand for high pressure cryogenic valves for these fuel gas systems. Bestobell Marine is playing a major role in meeting the challenge created by this demand with its new range of high pressure valves.

The company has previously supplied its high pressure valves for fuel gas systems for a variety of projects, including five Teekay LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) carriers being built at DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd) in South Korea, two LNG carriers being built at HHI (Hyundai Heavy Industries) Shipyard in South Korea for Knutsen OAS Shipping of No...

Bestobell Marine reaches 200th vessel milestone

21 April 2015 | Read

Bestobell Marine has reached a significant milestone in the company’s history, after receiving the 200th order for its cryogenic valves for use on vessels.

And what’s equally exciting is that 100 of these orders have been secured in the last two years!

Bestobell Marine’s recent increase in vessel orders is due in part to the company’s expansion into supplying valves to LNG (liquefied natural gas) fuel gas systems, which is a rapidly growing market.

Over the past two years, Bestobell Marine has established itself as one of the leading cryogenic globe valve suppliers for LNG fuel gas systems and the company has recently received its 37th order of this kind. With the expected increase in demand for fuel gas systems, the company is in a strong position to increase its market share even further internationally.

Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director of Bestobell Marine, said: “We are really excited about the huge opportunities for developing our business even further into the marine sector. We are now supplying cryogenic valves for LNG carriers, LNG fuel gas systems, reliquefaction equipment and re-gasification equipment on a global basis. We look forward to working with our mar...

Bestobell Marine breaks into the re-liquefaction market

21 April 2015 | Read

Bestobell Marine, a world leading supplier of cryogenic globe and check valves for ships, has secured two new high profile contracts for its cryogenic globe and check valves.

The valves are to be fitted in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) re-liquefaction systems that will be installed on two LNG carriers being built at HHI (Hyundai Heavy Industries) shipyard in South Korea for Knutsen OAS Shipping of Norway. Similar systems will also be installed on two sister ships being built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group in Japan for Elcano.

This is the first time that Bestobell Marine has supplied its globe and check valves for LNG re-liquefaction applications. The company has previously supplied cryogenic globe and check valves for re-gasification systems, including for the five Hoegh FSRUs (Floating Storage Regasification Units) that have been constructed at HHI shipyard.

Bestobell Marine’s cryogenic globe valves are fully fire-safe and leak-free, based on a proven design that has been used by the company for over a decade for LNG ship applications.

Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director for Bestobell Marine, said: “This is a very exciting contract win which could lead to new opportunit...
