The agreement means that the firms would be able to offer turnkey contracts for decommissioning of nuclear power plants, Studsvik said.
The cooperation will be marketed under the separate brand name of ndcon, Nuclear Decommissioning Consortium by Studsvik and Westinghouse.
"By establishing this close cooperation with world leading Westinghouse we complement Studsvik's areas of competence with all services that are necessary to be able to offer turnkey contracts in connection with decommissioning of nuclear power plants", comments Anders Jackson, president and chief executive officer, Studsvik.
"Westinghouse has planned and executed D&D services in Spain, Sweden, Germany and other countries, each having different regulatory regulations and reactor designs," said Yves Brachet, president, Westinghouse Europe, Middle East & Africa. "This teaming agreement with Studsvik will bring together an excellent combination of decommissioning and dismantling skills and services, as well as a wealth of experience that will ultimately contribute to our customer's success."
A significant number of nuclear power plants across Europe will need to be decommissioned and dismantled in the next 15 to 20 years, the companies said.
