Arc Energy Hosts BVAA Meeting
Weld overlay cladding and fabrication specialist Arc Energy Resources has hosted a regular monthly meeting of the British Valve and Actuator Association (BVAA), which represents the interests of British companies and their products at UK and international levels to promote the growth and profitability of the industry.
Eighteen members of the BVAA Valve Working Group - the body that looks after technical, legislation and standardisation issues, met to discuss technical responsibilities and review a new castings quality standard likely to impact on the industry. The group also received presentations from Arc Energy Resources on its weld overlay cladding process and from Chris Williamson of BEL Valves on the challenges presented by HPHT applications. The formal proceedings were followed by lunch and a tour of Arc Energy Resources’ Eastington factory.
BVAA member companies employ more than 9,000 people and generate over £1 billion sales each year. The association provides a forum for members and represents member companies at UK and EU levels on matters affecting the interests of the British valve and actuator industry. It also provides invaluable access to industry news, market information and reports, as well as networking opportunities with customers and suppliers.

Arc Energy Resources is one of the UK’s leading specialists in weld overlay cladding and fabrication for the oil & gas industry. The company’s expertise provides protection against corrosion and wear for a variety of process and pipeline equipment for use in any hostile environment.
The company recently made a major investment in two new Rotating Head welding machines costing £500,000. This has increased productivity and extended the size and scope of work it can handle, which now includes complicated component geometries for the full or partial cladding and fabrication of a huge range of component sizes weighing up to 15 tonnes. The company’s in-house designed cladding workstations feature state-of-the-art control systems developed to suit its customer’s specialised engineering requirements, and can clad bores up to four metres diameter and areas of restricted access within bores as small as 20mm diameter. Arc Energy also offers in-house test weld, heat treatment, PMI and NDT facilities.
Industry certifications include ISO 9001:2008 quality management, ISO 3834-2 fusion welding of metallic materials, and the internationally renowned ASME U and R Stamps, as well as ISO 14001:2004 environment management, Investors in People and OHSAS 18001:2007 Health & Safety management system.
