Thirty countries currently use nuclear power and about the same number are considering, planning or actively working to include it as part of their energy mix. We’re proud to be involved in a number of high-profile nuclear power projects, at home and abroad. Our valves have the zero-leakage and high integrity properties required in such demanding installations.
Of the 30 operating countries, 13 are either constructing new plants or actively completing previously suspended construction projects, and 12 are planning to either construct new plants or to complete suspended construction projects. The market is clearly due to grow and safety is always improving and Hobbs is right there, developing the products to suit.
Hobbs valves are currently in use in outer ring applications at Sellafield Nuclear Plant in the North West, and we also count British Nuclear Fuels among our customers.
