After being declared the winning bidder in a competitive selection process completed in mid-June, the Czech asset of Rimera Group will deliver a large shipment of isolation valves to one of the biggest facilities of TOTAL France. The delivery will include Class 150 - 300 gate valves, globe valves, and isolation valves 2" to 24" in diameter.
The products to be delivered by MSA to TOTAL in September-October 2014 are intended for a capacity expansion project at Total Raffinaderij Antweren – Europe's second largest oil refinery.
“The European market is of strategic importance for MSA. A developed logistics infrastructure, extensive experience of successful operation of the Czech products all over Europe, and proximity to installation sites are the competitive advantages of our Czech asset in the European Union,” says MSA Management Board Chairman Vladimir Kononov.
Under the contract, MSA will manufacture both regular valves and custom-designed valves that meet stringent requirements applicable to transportation of toxic substances. In light of this, products will be made to ISO 15 848 – a standard for operating valves in toxic environments. The valves will be fitted with special seals on the basis of this certification.
TOTAL ranks fourth in the world by oil production volume. The French company also operates substantial oil refining capacities. MSA previously delivered products to a TOTAL facility in 2012: valves used in a retrofit project at an oil refinery in the city of Gonfreville, France. In 2013, MSA supplied products via the EPC company Technicas Ruenidas used in an oil refinery upgrade project in Le Havre under a contract worth EUR 0.5 million.
