Westinghouse already has experience providing services to the operating fleet of CANDU reactors including in Canada, Korea, and Argentina, and will be expanding on that experience.
In April 2014, Westinghouse and Ontario Power Generation, Inc.
(OPG), through its subsidiary, Canadian Nuclear Partners
(CNP), announced an agreement to work together on a wide range of global nuclear projects.
Under the agreement, Westinghouse and OPG will consider a diversity of nuclear projects including refurbishment, maintenance and outage services, decommissioning and remediation of existing nuclear facilities, and new nuclear power plants.
OPG expertise in plant maintenance, upgrades and refurbishments will be well augmented by Westinghouse’s service offerings and global experience including in engineering and project management services, plant modifications, outage and maintenance services, instrumentation and control upgrades, nuclear fuel, and our state-of-the-art AP1000®
OPG is recognized around the world as the leading operator of CANDU reactors. In 2012, OPG’s Darlington Generating Station was awarded the Institute of Nuclear Power Operators Award of Excellence in recognition of its world-class performance.
Westinghouse and OPG have collaborated recently on several key projects. Currently, Westinghouse is performing work to design filtered containment vents at OPG’s Darlington Nuclear Power Station as part of the site’s refurbishment program.
