The groundbreaking ceremony for Metso's new greenfield valve technology center in Jiaxing, Chinaplant took place recently. The new technology center will start operations in spring 2020 and will serve the local and global markets.
Metso announced the delivery of the first valves with 3D printed parts from its Helsinki plant. The valves include 3D printed metal components that allow the valves to perform in a particularly demanding application where they need to withstand numerous fast open-close cycles without maintenance.
Metso will supply a significant amount of its Neles and Jamesbury valves for the largest petrochemical project in history: Sadara’s fully integrated chemicals complex currently under construction in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
