Safety as main focus point
Although the processes in nuclear power plants are similar to the ones in fossil-fired power plants, the safety requirements are extraordinary higher. This is why ADAMS delivers redesigned and tailor-made parts and for some plants even new developed valve solutions. These solutions are based on our broad experience which we have gathered through the past years when we had worked tight together with our customers on the development.
By our customer Siemens AG we were represented with the “Supplier Award” for the development of valves for the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant in Finland. We are also known as the only manufacturer of flooding valves, which are used to safely flood the reactor building with the nuclear fuel elements in case of a system failure.
ADAMS valves are used in the following areas and processes of these power plants:
- Cooling water circuits
- Water input and water use
- Fresh water
- For turbines and their protection
