LNG terminal is all Rotork

Excellent teamwork by Rotork offices in France, Italy and Spain has been rewarded by Rotork's selection as the supplier of all actuation packages for the Guangdong LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) Terminal at Chengtou Jiao on Dapeng Bay, China.

The project involves the construction of China's first LNG terminal and associated high pressure pipelines to supply Guangdong Province with 4 billion cubic metres of natural gas annually. Rotork's contract is with the STTS Group, a French/Italian joint venture comprising Siapem, Techigaz and engineering companies Tecnimont and Sofregaz, who have a $240 million engineering, procurement and construction turnkey contract for the project.

Rotork electric and pneumatic actuators have been ordered to operate mainly cryogenic ball and butterfly valves from valvemakers Orton and TRP-Perar in Italy and Poyam in Spain. Pneumatic actuator orders comprise a total of 92 GP Range and 103 CP Range actuators equipped with spool pieces, limit switchboxes and control panels.

All the actuators' electrical and pressurised components (air tanks, relief valves etc) are manufactured in compliance with the appropriate Chinese standards and legislation. All electrical components meet SIL Certification, with solenoid valves also conforming to the CCC (Certificate of Chinese Compliance) certification.
