April 2, 2009—Over 1,000 Rotork intelligent electric valve actuators were ordered for installation in the Qinzhou Refinery, a $1.6 billion project in South China. The PetroChina-owned refinery is designed to improve the energy supply across southwest China.

The Rotork IQPro intelligent actuators with Pakscan P3 network control systems are being installed in the following areas: crude oil, LPG, petroleum and diesel tank farms, processing and water purifying plants and wastewater treatment works.

Rotork's office in Guangzhou-in the Guangdong Province-is coordinating and supporting the actuation contracts. Other recent Rotork projects in the Chinese oil and gas industries include the 4,000 km West to East Natural Gas Pipeline, for which over 700 Rotork IQ electric actuators were ordered.
