泰科阀门经过将近两年的计划、发展和坚持不懈，一支由McDermott专家组成的专门团队和一家＊＊的阀门制造商合作，完成了阀门工业上的****的创举——制造了世界上**的锻造阀体的特种阀门。这款阀门将被用于INPEX运营的一个液化天然气项目。西澳大利亚州的液化天然气项目，要求连接海底立管基座和直径42英寸气体出口管道，这些出口管道通往岸上的液化天然气工厂。为此，需要专门设计和制造六台直径为42英寸的阀门，并满足40年使用寿命的设计标准。这批阀门是世界上**的单件锻造型上装式球阀。这批阀门每一台长约9米、7米高，重量超过100吨。首台阀门已经成功制造出来并完成的测试，第二台阀门也正常进行测试工作。在所有6台阀门通过工厂的测试后，其中两台阀门将安装270米深的海水中，另外4台阀门将安装在陆地上。4台阀门中有一台将被用于作切断阀门使用，而另外3台将安装中工厂内。关于McDermottMcDermott是一家集工程、采购、施工、安装为一体的全球上游行业的＊＊的供应商，产品包括固定和浮动生产设施、管道和水下系统，为石油公司提供复杂的海上石油、天然气项目的调试、安装解决方案，客户遍及20多个国家。公司从1923年建立，到现在已拥有超过14000名员工，并成功在纽约证券交易所上市。原标题：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.
