Emerson Process Management won a multi-million-dollar purchase order from State Nuclear Power Engineering Corp. to install Fisher control valves in Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized water reactors at two 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 bypass valve is a six-inch valve with a seismically qualified actuator and special trim. The main feedwater valve is a 20- by 16-inch valve.

The equipment will be installed at both the Sanmen 2 and Haiyang 2 nuclear power plants.
