Westinghouse has announced the formation of a new Canadian arm– Westinghouse Electric Canada, Inc. The new arm aims to increase Westinghouse’s business in Canada and position the company for potential new-build projects in the country.
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Westinghouse Electric Canada will strengthen the company's ties with Canadian suppliers and better align itself with regulations and requirements in the country.
“With the creation of Westinghouse Canada, we will better provide our worldwide capabilities and experience in a fashion that will meet the specific needs and aspirations of Canada's viable nuclear energy industry," said Jim Ferland, Westinghouse president, Americas.
Westinghouse currently has more than 150 Canadian suppliers that provide a range of products and services for the Westinghouse fuel, services, automation and nuclear power plant product lines. The company also says that utilities in Canada are expressing interest in its new reactors – both the AP1000 and the Westinghouse Small Modular Reactor, a 200 MW integral PWR currently under development.
