Friday, February 25, 2011
Emerson Process Management has been awarded a
multi-million dollar purchase order from State Nuclear Power Engineering
Corporation (SNPEC) for critical Fisher® control valves to be used in
Westinghouse AP1000™ pressurized water reactors at both the Sanmen 2 and
Haiyang 2 nuclear power plants in China.
The order includes valves for two applications at each
plant: a start-up or bypass valve and
the main feedwater valve. The actuators for both valves have been sized using
EPRI guidelines to meet industry standards.
