A subsidiary of China Valves Technology has been certified as a qualified supplier of China Nuclear Power Engineering (CNPE), the company responsible for nuclear engineering, construction and project management for the China National Nuclear Corporation.

Able Delight Valve Co. is China Valves’ second subsidiary after Kaifeng High Pressure Valve Co., Ltd. to receive the certification.

The certificate applies to butterfly valves, ball valves and cage guided globe valves for the conventional island of nuclear power plants. The certificate is reviewed every three years.

“We are pleased for Able Delight to be certified as a qualified supplier of CNPE, another great milestone in our effort to gain more market share in the nuclear power industry,” said Siping Fang, the company’s chairman and CEO. “The demand for valves for nuclear power applications is growing but the inspection of prospective suppliers is strict. We believe the addition of Able Delight as a qualified supplier will become another catalyst for rapid growth.”

Recently both Flowserve and Emerson have received orders for valves that will be used in the AP1000 reactors under construction at Sanmen and Haiyang.
