State Nuclear Power Engineering Corp. (SNPEC) has awarded Emerson Process Management a multi-million dollar purchase order for 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. These are among the first major valve orders to be placed by SNPEC for these AP1000 projects. The valves will be used for applications in the plants’ nuclear islands and in their passive residual heat removal system.

In the nuclear containment area, Emerson’s Fisher air-operated control valves will serve several functions related to operational safety.

In the passive residual heat removal system, Emerson’s Fisher control valves will help achieve proper plant cooling during shutdown.
