Flowserve Plays Vital Role in Making Snow at Sochi 2014 Olympics

13.02.2014

Flowserve Corporation announced its products will play a vital role in the snow-making efforts at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

Flowserve began integrating its products into snow-making systems in the early 1980s. Partnering with Torrent Engineering & Equipment, LLC, and having an installed customer base at more than 500 ski resorts across the globe, Flowserve has a big responsibility in the system that will provide snow at the ski venues during the games.

"I m confident that our products will exceed expectations for the Olympic ski events," said Mark Blinn, Flowserve President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have a legacy of more than 200 years of flow control product development and have participated in hundreds of snow-making systems across the globe. I m proud to know that our products will play a vital role in the overall experience for the athletes at the upcoming winter games."

The snow-making system at Sochi includes more than 20 Flowserve vertical turbine high-pressure pumps. The pumps are part of the overall snow-making system and pull the large amounts of water into the system that is needed to make snow. While the primary industries the company serves are oil and gas, power generation and chemical, for more than 200 years the company has had its products involved in many unique industrial applications.

In addition to its engineered and industrial pump products, Flowserve manufacturers seals and valves and provides a full range of related flow management services to its customers.
