ValvTechnologies is participating in the implementation of TVA’s Watts Bar 1&2, and now Duke Energy’s Catawba 1&2, FLEX initiatives. ValvTechnologies is actively pursuing a fleet wide compliance approach with the owner/operators of the U.S. nuclear plants in an effort to best address their specific needs for addressing their FLEX strategies.
The NRC's call for diverse and flexible coping capabilities, or FLEX strategy, was developed to address the loss of cooling capability and electrical power resulting from a severe natural event – making U.S. nuclear facilities even safer.
“These are significant ASME Section III “N” Stamped applications; our valve solutions are in the forefront of advanced design and manufacturing. Our ability to respond to our customers’ needs is obviously well received,” said Bill Henwood, Vice President for Nuclear Power at ValvTechnologies. “ValvTechnologies is committed to our role in the continued safe operation of nuclear power plants both domestically and around the world.”
