PJ Valves wins three FPSO supply contracts

PJV Gate Globe Close Up 400x400PJ Valves (PJV), the manufacturer and supplier of valves for the global energy industry, has been awarded three major FPSO valve contracts for projects in Nigeria, Brazil and Mexico

To support topsides in Nigeria, PJV was contracted to supply a package of ball, double block and bleed valves and check valves. In this case, PJV worked closely with the customer on pre-ordering requirements for raw materials to meet project specifications and short lead times.

In Brazil, PJV will manufacture and supply valves for a project located in the Santos Basin. The company will supply a range of globe and check valves supplied in carbon stainless steel, duplex and Inconel clad material. The valves will vary in sizes with a maximum of 18 inches in diameter to API 15000 in pressure class to support the vessel’s topside processing requirements. PJV will also provide on-site support for valve installation in China from its Singapore office.

Thirdly, PJV scooped a win in Mexico where it will deliver high-pressure check valves to support the high-pressure requirements of the project.

James Moir, group sales director, PJV, said, “We’re thrilled to have won all three tenders and to be working closely with our customers to simplify technical design, procurement process or both. These wins prove our partnership model works – we support our clients to provide reliable, and competitive products that meet their long-term needs.”

“This partnership involves challenging the status quo of “standard” customer-supplier relationships and offers significant benefits to both buyer and supplier on a win-win basis. It’s brilliant to cement our partnerships and status in the FPSO industry, and our focus is to continue to build these relationships through exceptional service,” he added.

The company has been awarded the projects for the standard of its design and manufacturing capabilities and its ability to deliver valves within short lead times. PJV’s strong supply chain relationships and experience in providing valves to more than 30 FPSO projects to date have also been contributing factors.

The valves for all projects will be manufactured in PJV’s factory in Italy and partner factories around the UK – all deliveries are expected to be completed in 2019.
