5 August 2010– Flowserve Corp. announced three orders totaling more than $10 million from China Nuclear Power Engineering Co. Ltd. (CNPEC) for nuclear main steam isolation valves.

Three facilities in China are expected to use the valves: Yangjiang Units 3 and 4, Fangchenggang Units 1 and 2, and Ningde Units 3 and 4. The CPR1000 units are scheduled to begin commercial operation between 2014 and 2016, each with a capacity of 1,000 MW.

The valves will be manufactured at the Flowserve facility in North Carolina, and are scheduled for delivery in 2011 and 2012.
