HSP Valves was awarded a contract for the supply of valves to the East Hub FPSO.
The East Hub Development project is located within Block 15/06, Angola. Eni operates the Block 15/06, holding a 35% interest. First production is expected in October 2016. The host platform for the project will be a leased FPSO, which is being converted from the Armada Ali Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) tanker (formerly MT Osprey VLCC).
For the project, HSP will supply 1 13/16” to 12” 2500# and API 10000 ball, globe, nozzle check and modular DBB valves, with compact flanged or hub ends, in a variety of exotic materials to Bumi Armada located in Singapore. We will also procure mating flanges, hubs and clamps, along with a number of lower pressure NiAlBz valves for the project.
Derrick Mackenzie, Sales Director for HSP Valves, commented, “We are very proud to be involved in this project. It reflects our leading position in the FPSO market and builds on our unique track record in supplying valve packages in APAC.”
