Westinghouse to join forces with Canadian nuclear company

17 April 2014

Westinghouse Electric Company and Ontario Power Generation, Inc. (OPG), have announced plans for joint working on nuclear projects worldwide.

OPG's role in the venture will be via its subsidiary Canadian Nuclear Partners, formed in 2012

The companies will consider a range of nuclear projects including refurbishment, maintenance and outage services, decommissioning and remediation of existing nuclear facilities, and new nuclear power plants.

Westinghouse president and CEO Danny Roderick said, "This relationship will further add to Westinghouse's advanced products and services that support our global customers' efforts to improve operating efficiencies and achieve cost-effective energy security and diversity while not damaging the environment with greenhouse-gas-emitting sources."

"OPG is pleased to work with Westinghouse and looks forward to exploring possible synergies between our companies," said Tom Mitchell, OPG president and CEO. "We anticipate that OPG's expertise in plant maintenance, upgrades and refurbishments will be well augmented by the service offerings and global experience of Westinghouse."

The two companies have collaborated recently on several key projects. Currently, Westinghouse is performing work to design filtered containment vents at OPG's Darlington Nuclear Power Station.
