Bestobell scores a century!
Bestobell Valves is celebrating a major new contract which brings the total of contracts for its innovative patented Float Level Insulation Valves (FLIV) across the world to over 100.
The new contract for FLIV is with Bestobell’s Chinese partner, Valseal International Ltd on behalf of Hudong Shipyard in Shanghai, China. The order is for the six China Shipping and Mitsui O.S.K Lines LNG carriers that will be built there. This is a major achievement for Bestobell and Valseal, and will help secure Bestobell’s position as a major supplier of LNG cryogenic valves in the expanding Chinese LNG carrier new build market. FLIV has proved to be a highly successful product for Bestobell and since the first FLIV was supplied to an LNG carrier back in 2007 then 6/10 of all LNG carriers that have been built have FLIV fitted!
