In a rapidly developing country like India with ever growing demand for LNG, thousands of AMPO POYAM valves are already installed in every regasification plant of the country and the new regasification plant at Chhara will not be an exception.

Toyo Engineering was awarded the project for a new regasification plant with a send out capacity of 5 million tons from HPCL Shapoorji Energy Pvt. Ltd (HSEPL) at Chhara, in Gujarat State on the west coast of India. This new terminal will have two LNG storage tanks with 185,000m3 capacity, as well as two loading bays. Toyo India is executing EPC work on turnkey basis and has relied on AMPO POYAM VALVES for the design, manufacturing and supply of several highly engineered cryogenic ball, gate, globe and check valves for this project. The regasification plant is scheduled to be completed in the beginning of 2022.

AMPO POYAM VALVES has worked hand in hand with Toyo on the optimal valve selection for each special and critical application of this project and is supplying more than 2000 cryogenic ball valves up to 36” and 1500 lbs, both manual and shutdown, as well as more than 240 cryogenic globe and check valves.

It has been our experience of more than 40 years in the LNG market and thousands and thousands of cryogenic valve references worldwide, and in particular in India (with thousands of valves recently supplied for Ennore and Dhamra LNG terminals), which has made the customer entrust the award of this contract to AMPO POYAM VALVES. Moreover, it should be noted that AMPO POYAM VALVES has since 2009 a 100% owned valve manufacturing plant in India.
