The job order was quite challenging, as it demanded a tight supply time-frame. The valves had to be manufactured and shipped within one month, while the plant’s power-generating unit was shut down.

Bellows valves of stop and control-type design are part of the MSA’s range of products intended for the nuclear power industry. These valves can be operated at high temperatures up to 350° С, in radioactive environment (with high-integrity design) and in chemical applications, for instance. 

“Since 2000, MSA has been a traditional valve supplier for the Paks Nuclear Power Plant in Hungary. This job order has been quite demanding in terms of tight schedule. Normally, it takes half a year to fabricate valves for nuclear plants. However, we have managed to produce and thoroughly test the valves, and supplied them ahead of the schedule - one month”, says Vladimir Kononov, Rimera Group's Executive Director, Chairman of the MSA Board.

Since 1975, the Czech plant (part of Rimera Group) has also been a traditional supplier of valves for the Russian nuclear power industry. Today, virtually all the nuclear plants in Russia are equipped with MSA products: Leningrad, Kursk, Rostov, Smolensk and many other power facilities. The annual scope of MSA supplies for the Russian nuclear power industry is worth several million euros.
