Valve support in focus - Indo14-Day3

07 November 2014

UK-based Hale Hamilton (Valves) Ltd (Hall A, Stand 025) is looking to establish relationships with in-country partners for the support of specialist valve systems fitted on board the Indonesian Navy’s three recently acquired Bung Tomo-class corvettes.

Hale Hamilton is a leading supplier of high-performance fluid control equipment. Its valves and autocharge systems are in service worldwide.

“We are in Indonesia for the first time to make contacts with Indonesian companies who can help support our valves on these three ships,” explained Bill Dormer, Hale Hamilton’s defence sales director. “We are looking for an in-country partner with a good capability in mechanical engineering, equipment repairs and user training.

“Reliable operation of our valves is critical to ship operations, without which the main engines, diesel generator and other vital ship systems will not function,” he added.
