Intelligent valve controllers chosen for FPSO project

19 April 2012

Metso has won an order from Eni Norge and Statoil to supply its latest generation stainless steel valve controllers to the Norwegian Goliat Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) plant in the Barents Sea.

Goliat is believed to be the first FPSO plant to feature all-automated valves equipped with Metso's full range of stainless steel valve controllers.

The intelligent controllers will be used on all pneumatic actuated control, on/off and ESD valves at the plant and will help to monitor and report on valve performance for asset management purposes. With all the valve-related information being made available, predictive maintenance is possible which should result in improved safety and will minimise operational and maintenance costs of the valves.

The stainless steel controllers can be seamlessly integrated with control and safety systems to enable better and constant monitoring of the whole valve network. This constant valve-condition monitoring also allows for the transfer of maintenance work analysis to an onshore location, reducing unnecessary on-site maintenance work.
