Press release date: April 28, 2014

Metso will supply industry-leading Neles® globe valve technology to Abu Dhabi Oil Refinery Company's (TAKREER) chemical refining complex in in the United Arab Emirates. The deliveries will include hundreds of Metso's Neles Globe control and on-off valves. Most of the control valves are equipped with Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controllers (FOUNDATION Fieldbus) for performance follow up and predictive maintenance, resulting improved process efficiency and uptime.

The valves will be installed in a carbon black and delayed coker plant currently under construction. Once completed in December 2015, the plant will process 30,000 barrels of crude oil per day and have an annual production capacity of 40,000 tons of carbon black. The refining complex is located in Ruwais some 240 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi City in the United Arab Emirates.

South Korean Samsung Engineering, which will provide project management services for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning processes on a turnkey basis, has chosen Metso's valve technology for the demanding project. "It is the largest project ever executed by our company, and the total valve quantities are huge," says Mr. YunKi Sung, Vice President, Procurement Dept., Samsung Engineering. "We chose Metso as our valve partner because we can rely on fast expediting; their valve factory is conveniently located close us to us in South Korea.''

"Also, we have had good support from Metso in our past projects. To ensure smooth startups, Metso offers its wide product knowledge and application expertise, global manufacturing facilities and sourcing, full expediting and inspection support, a global service network and comprehensive startup support.''
