Bestobell Valves are cruising!
Bestobell Valves has won a major new contract to supply cryogenic valves to TGE (Marine Gas Engineering) in Germany for two fuel-efficient dual-fuel cruise liners.
The valves are destined for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan where the 984ft long vessels are being built, on behalf of Aida cruise lines of Germany. These ships will be able to run on LNG (liquefied natural gas), which offers greater fuel efficiency, as well as marine diesel oil or heavy fuel oil. Bestobell Valves will supply around 40 globe valves, non-return valves and check valves for the contract, which are currently being made at its factory in Sheffield ready to be shipped out to TGE in August this year for incorporation in their fuel system.
