Not only was the close-knit project plan be implemented on time, the necessary theoretical training was also carried out via digital channels.
Find out more about how the Schuck Service Team successfully retrofitted existing ball valves in a pipeline in Mexico and what special features, measurement and control technology brought about the automation of the ball valves.
SCHUCK Service Team on the "Cuxtal" project
In this retrofit project, SCHUCK actuators were installed on existing ball valves and are therefore an essential part of the success of the ENGIE (Cuxtal) pipeline for the gas supply on the Yucatán peninsula.
An ordinance issued by the Mexican President posed a particular challenge, as commissioning had to be carried out as quickly as possible. The expansion of the Mayakán Gas Pipeline is also in preparation.
