Arca is now a certified Main Valve Vendor for BASF Chemicals in Germany and is one of only two global suppliers for its automated process control valves. The Main Valve Vendor concept (MVV 3) is a selection process for suppliers developed by BASF and is aimed at supplying standard valves for plant maintenance and projects with key suppliers.
Early in 2014, BASF started a programme for the qualification of suppliers. It was divided into three phases and was based on the criteria of quality, security and cost. The MVV 3 project was started in 2016, building on the already successful MVV 2 project for standard manual valves and automated valves. The objective of the selection process included long-time collaboration with suppliers, standardisation, planning reliability and a global footprint, all leading up to Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
In future, small and medium sized projects will be awarded directly to the MVV 3 suppliers without the need for tenders. For large projects the tender process will favour Arca and one other control valve company, both of whom are on the standard suppliers list. With the qualification and acceptance by BASF, Arca once again proves its performance as a reliable control valve supplier. The award is a sign of confidence that BASF places in Arca.
