PJ Valves (PJV), a specialist valves manufacturer and supplier, has landed a $650,000 contract by a major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.

The company, whose main headquarters are in the UK, will build and deliver ball, butterfly, gate, globe and check valves to a liquefied natural gas (LNG) modernisation project in New Jersey, US, after winning a competitive tender.

PJV will supply more than 500 valves in both cryogenic, so they can operate in low temperatures when gas is cooled and condensed into LNG, and non-cryogenic design.

“We’re delighted to be working with a new local end user in the US on this exciting project,” said Spencer Linsell, Group Business Development Director at PJV.

“Our team thrives on delivering innovative solutions and this demanding project will allow us to do just that. We’ll be able to demonstrate both our manufacturing and distribution capabilities, giving our client access to the best of both worlds from one supplier.”

PJV’s factories in India and Italy will make the carbon and stainless steel valves which will range up to 12 inches in diameter and 2500 lb in pressure class.

The company was awarded the tender for the standard of its design and manufacturing capabilities as well as its ability to deliver valves to meet the December 2018 deadline.
