Rotork fluid power valve actuators in the Chilean pipeline industries

Pipeline, storage and associated applications in Chile serve to illustrate Rotork’s scope of supply for fluid power valve actuators in a range of different technologies to suit diverse and challenging environments.

LNG import and distribution

Rotork fluid power valve actuators have been installed throughout a major new LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) importing and distribution project that is expected to meet 40% of the demand for gas in Chile and secure energy independence for the country. The LNG complex at Quintero Bay encompasses the installation of a sea terminal to receive LNG from tankers and a plant for regassifying and distribution by pipelines into central Chile.

Rotork Fluid Systems has received orders for heavy duty, scotch-yoke pneumatic, gas-over-oil and highpressure gas actuators which have been supplied to valvemakers in France, Italy and Spain. The majority of the eighty-seven CP and GP range pneumatic actuators supplied are operating cryogenic service ball and butterfly valves at the Quintero Bay marine terminal and the adjacent storage and regassification plant.
