泰科閥門經過將近兩年的計劃、發展和堅持不懈，一支由McDermott專家組成的專門團隊和一家＊＊的閥門制造商合作，完成了閥門工業上的****的創舉——制造了世界上**的鍛造閥體的特種閥門。這款閥門將被用于INPEX運營的一個液化天然氣項目。西澳大利亞州的液化天然氣項目，要求連接海底立管基座和直徑42英寸氣體出口管道，這些出口管道通往岸上的液化天然氣工廠。為此，需要專門設計和制造六臺直徑為42英寸的閥門，并滿足40年使用壽命的設計標準。這批閥門是世界上**的單件鍛造型上裝式球閥。這批閥門每一臺長約9米、7米高，重量超過100噸。首臺閥門已經成功制造出來并完成的測試，第二臺閥門也正常進行測試工作。在所有6臺閥門通過工廠的測試后，其中兩臺閥門將安裝270米深的海水中，另外4臺閥門將安裝在陸地上。4臺閥門中有一臺將被用于作切斷閥門使用，而另外3臺將安裝中工廠內。關于McDermottMcDermott是一家集工程、采購、施工、安裝為一體的全球上游行業的＊＊的供應商，產品包括固定和浮動生產設施、管道和水下系統，為石油公司提供復雜的海上石油、天然氣項目的調試、安裝解決方案，客戶遍及20多個國家。公司從1923年建立，到現在已擁有超過14000名員工，并成功在紐約證券交易所上市。原標題：World's Largest Specialty Valves Created with McDermott Engineers原文：HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After nearly two years of planning, development and perseverance, a dedicated team of McDermott experts has achieved a first of a kind in the valve industry; creating the world’s largest forged body specialty valve, in collaboration with a leading valve manufacturer. The valves are destined for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project.“The Ichthys Project umbilical, riser and flowline infrastructure – which will be installed at the Ichthys Field offshore Western Australia - requires connection of the subsea riser base to the 42-inch gas export pipeline going to the onshore LNG processing facility,” explained Jonathan Parkes, McDermott Senior Project Director. “This meant that six 42-inch valves had to be specially designed and fabricated to meet the 40-year design criteria. To our knowledge, these are the world’s largest, single-piece forged, top entry ball valves.”Each valve measures approximately 9 meters in length and 7 meters high, and weighs more than 100 tonnes. The first valve has been successfully built and tested. The second valve is currently undergoing factory acceptance testing and is expected to be ready in September. Once all six valves have passed factory testing, two will be installed offshore in 270 meters of water, while the remaining four will be installed onshore, one at the landfall block valve and three at the processing facility at Bladin Point.“This is a great demonstration of client demand driving innovation, and through collaboration, team work and effective Supply Chain Management, on a global scale, we have created an industry first,” commended Tony Duncan, Executive Vice President, Subsea.ABOUT MCDERMOTTMcDermott is a leading provider of integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services for upstream field developments worldwide.
