Flowserve Signs agreement With Brazilian Pulp Plant

Flowserve announces agreement to provide valves for brazilian pulp plant

Flowserve Corporation recently announced it has signed a purchase agreement with Eldorado Celulose e Papel, S.A., a Brazilian pulp company, to supply control and on-off valves for a new plant.

This new plant, expected to be one of the world’s largest single-line pulp plants when it becomes operational in October 2012, will be located in Três Lagoas, a city in the western state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The plant is projected to have the capacity to process 1.5 million tons of dry pulp per year for export.

Under terms of the agreement, Eldorado plans to make future purchases of Flowserve NAF control valves, Flowserve Atomac, Flowserve PMV valve positioners and Flowserve Worcester Controls onoff valves, which will be used in the operation of the new plant after construction is complete. Flowserve signed the agreement in the second quarter of 2011 and expects to begin booking orders later in the year.

“This agreement is a testament to the strength of our product portfolio and our ability to provide local service to the customer through our local office in São Caetano,” said Tom Pajonas, president, Flowserve Flow Control Division. “We are pleased to supply the products that help manage the flow of pulp for such a ground-breaking project.”

Valves included in the order are expected to be manufactured at the Flowserve facilities in Linköping, Sweden; Ahaus, Germany; and São Caetano do Sul, Brazil.
