Valves selected for upgrade, expansion project

Metso's Jamesbury valves have been selected for an upgrade and expansion project by Heurtey Petrochem in Russia. The project is expected to be completed by 2014.

04/24/2013


Heurtey Petrochem has selected Metso to supply its Jamesbury on/off valves for an upgrade and expansion project at the Tuapse refinery situated in the Krasnodar region on the Black Sea coast in Russia. Metso will be the main on-off valves supplier to Heurtey Petrochem, which has been contracted to manufacture and supply refining heaters.

The valves are designed to help optimize the plant's safety and productivity while reducing lifecycle ownership costs. The valves meet all international standards and those pertaining to this specific type of project. 

Metso's Jamesbury on/off valves are designed to provide long-lasting, tight shutoff that serves to extend intervals between maintenance for more production up time, while minimizing fugitive emission releases that could pose risks to health and the environment. Metso will deliver more than 350 valves during spring 2013. 

Commissioned in 1929, the Tuapse Refinery, specializes in the production of motor fuel. It is the oldest refinery in the JSC Rosneft Group. The expansion project, scheduled for completion in 2014, is a broader Refinery Modernization Program initiated by Rosneft in 2008. Heurtey Petrochem acts as EPC Contractor for the Tuapse Refinery Expansion and Upgrade project.
