Oliver Valves Welcome PCE Spain & Portugal

Oliver Valves has appointed Process Control and Equipment (PCE) as an authorised distributor for their instrumentation, Double Block and Bleed, Pipeline, and Hydrogen valves in Spain and Portugal.

As the preferred distributor for the UK, this strong partnership with PCE has been built over 20 years. The announcement follows PCE’s appointment for the Benelux region in 2022, and falls in-line with Oliver’s European strategy to deliver high quality valve solutions ‘nationally’, with efficient after-sales support ‘locally’. PCE is integral to delivering on this.

Oliver Valves territory manager for Europe and Africa, Andy Hole, said “Our unrivalled reputation for valve solutions has been strengthened further with professional representation of our brands in the Benelux region, and we’re very excited to continue the success with PCE in Iberia.”

Having successfully delivered product and after-sales support training to PCE this month, the key learning outcomes were mutually beneficial  – with discussions around market opportunity, and how well we can support each other in achieving our goals.”

Oliver Twinsafe Engineers Let Off Steam

Oliver Twinsafe, in partnership with their official distributor HT-PCE, collaborated with an industrial processing plant in solving huge leakage problems experienced on steam applications.

Their existing metal-seated valve design had to be improved and even replaced, and for good reasons. Their valves had only a single isolation design, and exposed the risk of leakage due to the number of potential leak paths they contained.

The perfect solution would be for the valve design to have far fewer leak paths, metal-seating with zero-seat leakage, and a compact design that reduces overall space and weight.

Fast forward a few weeks and the engineering team at Oliver Twinsafe custom-designed a 2” / 300lb Double Block and Bleed (DBB) valve supplied complete with actuators and utilisation of all ball valve operation. The team took onboard all of the technical requirements, used existing and proven valve technology and materials to create the perfect solution to this problem. It’s often said, that when engineers creatively let off steam, it usually results in some of the most amazing solutions, and this has been no exception.

On completion of initial trials, the 2” DBB valves are to be installed on other UK and overseas processing plants.

Oliver Valves Chosen to Supply World’s Single Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Oliver Valves are to supply a range of Modular and Monoflange double block and bleed valves to the Hornsea 3 Wind Farm project located in the UK sector of the North Sea. Hornsea 3 has two platforms, link 1 and link 2. These are unmanned and operated from shore with access to carry out maintenance done by vessel or helicopter.

These High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) offshore converter platforms have a combined capacity to produce 2.852 GW, enough to power the average daily needs of over 3 million UK homes. This makes it the single largest offshore wind project in the world.

Manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel, Super Duplex, and Titanium materials, valves are to be used in cooling systems and firewater applications. Regional Manager for Scotland and Scandinavia, Colin Wood, says, “We’re extremely proud as a business to supply valves for operation on large-scale green energy projects, and it’s particularly exciting to be working with a UK-based green project, such as Hornsea 3.”

We’re committed to supporting a Net Zero Emission future, and have recently launched a range of zero seat leakage valves for hydrogen applications. Our investment in designing new and innovative valve technologies is having an enormous impact and is hugely significant – even a game changer!”

Oliver Valves Custom-design DBBs for Offshore Project

Oliver Valves have manufactured a number of 2” double block and bleed valves for a huge offshore project. The bolted end trunnion DBB valves have been designed using ASTM A350 LF6 carbon steel material and are designed to API 6A, with a maximum pressure rating of 5,000 psi. The order forms part of Oliver’s continued supply of DBB valves to the project that include Tie-in and Wellhead platforms.

Valves currently in production at our UK factory in Knutsford, Cheshire, are undergoing a specific manufacturing and assembly process at the request of the customer. This includes custom spray-paint finishing for added protection against the harsh offshore environments of oil, water, and gas injection platforms.
