Curtiss-Wright issues statement

Curtiss-Wright Corp has issued following statement regarding its nuclear power generation business in light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the ensuing damage to the Fukushima reactors: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan in the face of this extraordinary natural disaster and the inconceivable hardships they are enduring,” said Martin R. Benante, CEO and Chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “While we don’t have any plant control equipment at the affected plants, with our long experience and acquired knowledge of the nuclear power generation market, we have been and will continue to work with U.S. and international nuclear regulatory agencies to provide information and assistance to Japan in any way that we can. We would anticipate that the lessons learned from this event will be incorporated into the design and operation of future nuclear power plants worldwide.” He continued, “According to some of the larger reactor designers and construction firms in the nuclear industry, the events in Japan are not expected to have any immediate impact on new nuclear projects currently under construction in the U.S. and China, two key markets for Curtiss-Wright where we are currently manufacturing reactor coolant pumps for Generation III+ commercial nuclear power plants.”
