The World’s Largest Gate Valve in Nickel Aluminium Bronze?

46 Inch Nickel Aluminium Bronze Gate Valve

Commissioned in 2010 by global EPC contractor Technip, based in Abu Dhabi, Shipham Valves have successfully manufactured a number of large diameter (28" up to 46" Class 150) gate valves in Nickel Aluminium Bronze (NAB) materials. These NAB gate valves will be used on the huge seawater intake pipelines that form part of the BAPCO (The Bahrain Petroleum Company B.S.C) installation of the new steam turbo-generators (STG) project.

The enormous 46 Inch NAB gate valves are believed to be the largest manufactured from Nickel Aluminium Bronze materials in the world, towering nearly 5.5 metres in height and weighing over 7 Tonnes.

John Wall, Managing Director of Shipham Valves commented “The successful delivery of these products to the BAPCO-STG project confirms Shipham Valves’ position as global market leaders, at the cutting edge, for the supply of corrosion resistant valve solutions for sea water applications in arduous marine environments in the Middle East region and beyond.”
