Baker Hughes and DARVICO together supply Control Valve Package to World’s Largest IGCC Power Plant
Jubail, Saudi Arabia (April 22, 2019)
Baker Hughes announces the delivery of the highly engineered, severe service control valve packages to Saudi Aramco’s Jazan Integrated Gas Combined Cycle Power Plant. At greater than 2,500 MW, The Jazan IGCC Power Plant is the world’s largest gasifier-based Power Plant, using vacuum residue and high-sulphur fuel oil from the Jazan Refinery to fuel Power Generation to feed the local Jazan complex, and to help meet the increase in energy demands across the Kingdom of Saud Arabia.
Through a long lasting Joint Venture partnership established 1985, Dresser Al-Rushaid Valve & Instrument Co. Ltd, (DARVICO) and Baker Hughes have been providing highly engineered, Masoneilan control valve solutions to Saudi Aramco through localized production within Saudi Arabia. This includes localized assembly, test, and calibration capability completed in December 2018 at DARVICO in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia for many highly engineered, and large size control valves, including multi-stage 30” low noise 49000 series, V-Log globe valves for vent applications.
Together with Baker Hughes’s Conde, France factory, the combined teams have also successfully supplied many large size globe valves for oxygen service, and severe service sweep angle 73000 series valves for the highly erosive Blackwater letdown applications that are critical for the performance of this plant technology. D.R. Pai, General Manager of DARVICO said, “The support of Baker Hughes and Saudi Aramco were key drivers in the successful execution of the 10-ton, 5-meter tall Masoneilan 49000 series assembly in our Jubail’s state of art facility. A customized and specially engineered product, these valves requires special manufacturing, testing and handling. Through local investments in advanced technology and equipment, such as (2) 20-ton overhead cranes, and full range machine shop, DARVICO has been able to undertake all assembling operations through our team of qualified Saudi engineers and professional locally.”
