Metso Celebrates Neles Globe Valve Technology Centre in South Korea
Strengthening the valve production foothold with the most comprehensive range of control valves
The new plant will serve oil & gas and power customers both locally and globally and will strengthen service capabilities in the growing Asian markets. The new technology center consists of manufacturing, stateof- the-art control valve testing facilities, research and development, laboratory, engineering, and service support units for South Korean EPC companies.
‘The new technology center in South Korea will strengthen our capabilities to develop, produce and deliver our globe valves especially for customers in the oil and gas and the power industries. The South Korean EPC companies play an important role in many customer projects worldwide. Within the new facility we can better offer research and development, engineering and service support for them,’ says Markus Hauhia, Director, Globe Valve product line, Automation.
Today, Metso’s control valve range is the most comprehensive on the market. It includes globe valves, top entry rotary valves, triple eccentric disc valves, eccentric rotary plug valves, and segment valves. The portfolio covers products suitable for every application - from general to severe service and from low temperature or pressure to high temperature or pressure.
Strong valve production foothold on every continent
Metso has a total of eight valve technology centers around the world. The investment made in South Korea continues Metso’s strategy to strengthen valve operations globally. In 2011 Metso opened a new world-class valve technology center in Vantaa, Finland, and in 2010 in Shanghai, China.
The company is currently expanding its valve production facilities in the US in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. Metso also has first-rate valve production facilities in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and in Horgau Germany. The modern valve supply and service centers in Sorocaba, Brazil, and in Vadodara, India, serve customers in the specific country and region.
