Westinghouse Electric Company said that it has been awarded several integrated outage and refuelling service contract extensions from Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
Under the terms of the agreement, Westinghouse will continue to deliver outage support to the Sequoyah and Watts Bar NPPs beginning in the autumn 2021 outage season.
The multi-year contract extensions will secure the supply of pressurised water reactor (PWR) refuelling, as well as steam generator (SG) inspection and maintenance services. These agreements build on a strong legacy of partnership with TVA as a full-spectrum provider of fuel outage, engineering and maintenance services.
“We recognise that nuclear utilities face ever-increasing cost pressures as the power generation landscape continues to evolve,” said David Howell, Westinghouse President of Americas Operating Plant Services. “By extending this alliance, TVA has demonstrated their confidence in Westinghouse to deliver safe, efficient and reliable outage and maintenance solutions to ensure its plants return to operations on time and on budget.”
