Tyco Flow Control’s Sempell AG Receives ‘Top AREVA Supplier’ Award

July 2, 2009

PRINCETON, N.J., July 2 /PRNewswire/ — Tyco Flow Control announced that the company’s Germany-based Sempell AG, a leading provider of nuclear valve products worldwide, accepted the “Top AREVA Supplier” designation at a ceremony in Berlin on July 1. AREVA, a world energy expert in nuclear power generation, electricity transmission and distribution, recognized their vital relationship with Sempell AG, and their mutual commitment to innovation, reliability and quality in the power industry.

“As a global leader in the power technology industry, we rely on important success factors such as know-how, innovation, reliability and quality,” said Anne Lauvergeon, Chairman of the Board of Managers and President of AREVA. “Our goals can only be reached through trusting cooperation with trade partners who are committed to these success criteria. It is a great pleasure for me to announce that Sempell AG has been selected as a member of the distinguished circle of AREVA suppliers.”

As countries around the world look for safer, cleaner and more efficient ways to create energy, today nuclear power generation is recognized as one of the most viable solutions. Even in countries where it was dormant, nuclear power is seeing an unprecedented increase in demand. Over the next 25 years, as many as 100 reactors will be built worldwide, and China alone has accelerated its goal for nuclear power to 70,000 megawatts by 2020.

This renaissance, however, is met with the reality that many manufacturers abandoned the industry during its downturn. Companies, such as Tyco Flow Control, with its portfolio of trusted brands including Sempell, have remained steadfast to the industry and now play a vital role in its future. Tyco Flow Control solidified its commitment by continuing to invest and optimize its critical system solutions to meet the needs of customers around the globe, regardless of their requirements of code, reactor type or end-user market.

“The relationship with AREVA is a good example of how Tyco Flow Control is working to meet customers’ needs,” said Dr. Achim Trasser, Managing Director, Sempell AG. “We not only provide our partners with high-quality products to the most critical parts of nuclear facilities, but we remain committed long after the installation, with full after-market support to ensure their operations run safely and to help improve their business efficiency.”

“AREVA has been a major player in the global resurgence of nuclear power generation and we are pleased to be recognized for our work alongside them in this endeavor,” added Patrick Decker, President of Tyco Flow Control. “Through offering a range of end-to-end solutions on a global basis, we have been able to partner with companies like AREVA to create vital energy infrastructures to help communities achieve more sustainable futures, with a cleaner, safer and more reliable source of power.”
