Pressure Tech in clov-er in S.Korea

Regulator installation

Rapidly expanding UK regulator manufacturer Pressure Tech has secured a further large order from the lucrative South Korean market. A major supplier of actuator control systems for FPSOs - floating production, storage and offloading vessels – has ordered a massive 100 units of the economical LF-540 hydraulic regulator to be used in the important Clov field. FPSOs are preferred in frontier offshore regions as they are easy to install, and do not require a local pipeline infrastructure to export oil. The regulators will be used to help control the ballast systems of the vessels, which actually use oil to provide stability. Pressure Tech’s LF-540 was chosen for its combination of outstanding economy and excellent sensitivity.

Altogether, this is the fourth project that the innovative Glossop-based manufacturer has secured in South Korea in recent years. Steve Yorke-Robinson, Pressure Tech’s Managing Director, commented, “When economy and performance are key criteria for a client sourcing pressure regulators, it’s our objective to be the first name on the shortlist. I’m delighted to receive such a large order, and from such an important market to boot.”
