Launch date: September 2015
Location: Western Australia desert
Spacx' first delivery of SS316 equipment to Australia for a nickel refinery located in the harsh environment of the western Australian dessert.
The delivery consists of full SS316 actuator with SS316 controls including solenoid valve, filter/regulator, closed loop breather system and limitswitch enclosure.
Launch date: May 2015
These two linear actuators with SS316 cylinders complete with control system and hydraulic manual override are assembled to free issued 18”-150# gate valves.
To limit the overall height, decision was made to delete the original valve yoke and close couple the actuator to the valve.
The actuators are equipped with smart proportional 4-20mA controls in conjunction with a fail to safe system that drives the valve to the fail position after loss of instrument air.
For SBM’s FPSO Capixaba relocation to the Cachalote field for Pertobras in Brasil, BSM Actuators & Controls was chosen to deliver an actuator with controls. The carbon steel actuator itself was produced from stock items for a short term delivery whereas the control system comprising a filter regulator, check valve, gauge, solenoid valve and closed loop breather system was assembled after the actuator was coated in full accordance with the project specified coating system.
Launch date: September 2014
Location: Gullfaks C
For the Statoil Gullfaks C platform Spacx Actuators & Controls was selected to deliver the actuators with control panels. Because of the limited available space on the platform the Spacx compact actuators were selected. The control panel consists of filter regulators, gauges and solenoids. Also a limit switch is included to each actuator. These BCS actuators are coated with Norsok M501 system 1.
Launch date: July 2014
Location: Gas treatment plant Nearshore
For a MRO project for a natural gas plant we have supplied pneumatic stainless steel 316 spring return actuators, fitted with a limit switch box. These actuators are assembled, adjusted and tested to several 2”-300# ballvalves from Spacx. There was no coating system required due to the corrosive resistant materials used and the fast track delivery of 4 weeks.
Launch date: June 2014
Location: North sea
Due to a unwanted situation with some heavily corroded carbon steel actuators with carbon steel ty-bars holding the spring together, Spacx A&C have produced several replacement hydraulic spring return actuators to an offshore platform on the North sea.
Launch date: April 2014
Partners: Vest Ventil
Location: Statoil Norway, Mariner field nearby Shetland Islands.
The actuators we produced for this project are an integral part of the valve and are supplied as such together with our partner BSM Valves. The assembly is made of RVS316 and therefore didn’t require any coating. No control system was required. The total scope consisted of eight BCX30 actuators with valves, fail closed.
Launch date: February 2014
Partners: Linde AG
Location: Statoil Hammerfest
For Statoil Snøhvit Improvement Project, Spacx actuators & controls have delivered metall seated, trunnion mounted ballvalves fitted with compact type helical slot actuators with control systems fitted inside a SS316 enclosure attached to the actuators.
The actuators are coated with the Norsok coating system including a Frosio paint report.
Launch date: December 2013
Partners: Aker Solutions
Location: Statoil Norway
For an additional project on the Gullfaks Platform, Spacx have supplied ballvalves complete with full SS316 pneumatic spring return fail close actuators in full compliance with Statoil TR0038 specification with SS316 switchbox and SS316 compact manifold control system. Also a closed loop breather system is installed to avoid ingress of the corrosive environment.
The required delivery time was 4 weeks and was very critical, therefore choice was made for SS316 actuators to avoid a 6 day paint cycle and Frosio inspection.
Launch date: December 2013
Partner: DSME South-Korea
For the Allseas Pieter Schelte, the world’s largest pipelay and platform installation/decommissioning vessel currently under construction at the Daewoo shipyard in South Korea, Spacx has supplied 28-off electric actuators with gearboxes to suit Spacx for purpose engineered ballvalves for the hydraulic ringmain system.
Launch date: October 2013
Location: Mid Kazakhstan
For a medium size modification project at Karachaganak Petroleum Operating company in Kazakhstan, Spacx have supplied ballvalves complete with full SS316 pneumatic spring return fail close actuators suitable for use in a low temperature environment limited to -50° Centigrade. All additional equipment such as solenoid valves, filter/regulators, gauges etc were also selected to withstand the severe conditions a closed loop breather system is installed to avoid ingress of the environment. Choice was made for SS316 actuators to meet the low temperature requirements.
Launch date: July 2013
Location: Statoil Norway
Through Aibel’s maintenance and modifications contract for Statoil’s Kårstø processing plant north of Stavanger, Spacx delivered several actuators to the åsgard mixedbed installation.
The scope was for pneumatic spring return fail close actuators complete with limitswitch assemblies and actuator to valve mounting facility suitable for direct mounting onto free issued ball and butterfly valves of various makes. The Carbon steel actuators where painted in full accordance with the Norsok M501 system 01 coating specification including Frosio inspection.
Launch date: May 2013
Location: Northsea Platform
As a replacement actuator for a leaking valve at an Apache platform on the Northsea, Spacx has designed a hydraulic spring return fail close linear actuator to suit a 10”-1500# gate valve from an Italian valve manufacturer. The delivery was critical as the new valve complete with actuator needed to be installed during a plant maintenance shutdown.
Launch date: March 2013
Location: Shell Nigeria
For EPC contractor Daewoo, Spacx has designed, produced and delivered several safeguard systems for a pipeline project for Shell in Nigeria.
The scope was for valves with actuators and systems to locally open the valve by means of hydraulic handpump and shutdown the valve after a certain pressure drop or pressure raise downstream of the valve.
The complete scope is delivered within 12 working weeks.
