Flowserve has booked a multi-million dollar order from Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd (KHNP) for main steam and main feedwater isolation valves.
The valves will be used at KHNP’s Shin-Kori 3 and 4 nuclear plant’s Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs), which are currently under construction and scheduled for commercial operation in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Shin-Kori 3 and 4 represent the first two reactors built to KHNP’s new APR-1400 reactor design.
“This order is a direct result of Flowserve’s 20-year relationship with KHNP, and our long history of providing solutions to the nuclear power industry,” said Mark Blinn, Flowserve President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to play such an important role in the production of clean, emissions-free energy in South Korea and around the world.”
Flowserve main steam isolation valves (MSIVs) and feedwater isolation valves play an important role in emergency nuclear power plant shut downs by preventing the reactor from losing its protective cooling water.
