Westinghouse Electric Company - Leaders in Nuclear Automation, Fuel, Services & Nuclear Plants

Westinghouse Electric Company offers a wide range of nuclear plant products and services to utilities throughout the world, including fuel, service and maintenance, instrumentation and control and advanced nuclear plant designs.

Westinghouse Electric Company- Overview

Fifty-five years ago, Westinghouse helped build the first commercial nuclear power plant in the U.S. Today there are more than 440 operating commercial nuclear plants worldwide with a net generating capacity of more than 368 gigawatts, and several new nuclear plants are under construction. Westinghouse technology is the basis for approximately half of these reactors, giving us the largest installed base of operating plants in the world.

Across the globe, electricity demand will nearly double by the year 2030. The growing need for electricity and the desire to produce electricity without harming the environment has sparked a robust need around the world to use nuclear energy. As a result, Westinghouse is building and investing in the future.

First and Still First

The AP1000 design is the only advanced plant that can offer regulatory certainty with the recent issuance of Final Design Certification from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and interim design approval by regulatory authorities in the United Kingdom. Ten AP1000 reactors are under contract - four in China and six in the U.S. Construction is underway on four units in the US (Vogtle and VC Summer). All four Chinese plants remain on schedule, with the first Sanmen unit on track to produce electricity by the end of 2013.

With the headquarters near Pittsburgh, Pa. (USA), Westinghouse has operations in 17 countries with over 14,000 employees.

About Us

In the fall of 2006, Westinghouse joined with Toshiba Corporation to further strengthen our position as the world's leader in commercial nuclear power. Toshiba's experience in boiling water reactor (BWR) technology - combined with leadership in power generation, electronics, digital products and scientific research - enables Westinghouse to strengthen and expand its range of products and services.

All of this combines to place Westinghouse at the forefront of the nuclear industry.
