Curtiss-Wright Flow Control wins Progress Energy nuclear plant contract

Falls Church, Va., July 21, 2011 — Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Co.'s business unit Scientech signed a contract with Progress Energy to provide a safety-related Inadequate Core Cooling Mitigation System to support the extended power uprate at the utility's Crystal River Unit 3 nuclear power plant in Florida.

The new protection system uses only analog technology to perform safety functions, while providing modern computer-based online performance monitoring through an isolated, non-safety monitor.

This combination of analog and digital technologies is designed to simplify the licensing process and reduce cyber-security concerns since no software is used to perform the safety-related functions of the system. The new system will be built at Scientech's Idaho Falls facility.

Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Co. designs and manufactures of valves, pumps, motors, generators, electronics, systems and related products for the commercial nuclear power industry, oil and gas processing facilities and a range of critical military programs.
