Physical Security

In the Nuclear Industry, Physical Security is a critical part of safe day-to-day operations.

From both a regulatory standpoint and to the commitment of protecting the health and safety of the public, an efficient, effective Security program is essential. When it comes to meeting your security needs, Westinghouse is here to help.

A DOE report on Light Water Reactor Sustainability published the findings that Physical Security can account for as much as 20% of the nuclear workforce at a site, and that the cost for Security can be as high as 7% of the annual total cost of power generation.

Westinghouse offers a full suite of Physical Security products and services, covering Vulnerability Assessments, Gap Assessments, RAPT Analysis, Risk Assessments, Computer System Design and Upgrades, Site Specific Engineering, and System Installation/Construction. Our full suite of services ensures your site remains in compliance with 10 CFR 73.55, while decreasing operating costs.

A Hands-On Approach to Design

Our team is unique in that all members are not only degreed Engineers but have hands-on training and experience and each Subject Matter Expert (SME) is certified in Explosive Breaching, Mechanical Breaching, Close Quarters Combat and Long-Range Marksmanship. This means that we are able to design your program with real-world knowledge, ensuring the most practical approach to the safety of your site. Our site-specific, tailored approach to Security ensures your program is lean, effective, and compliant, saving millions of dollars over the life of the plant.

Westinghouse also has a stand-alone, NRC-audited Safeguards Information (SGI) program at our Corporate Headquarters in Cranberry PA.

All Westinghouse physical security SMEs hold clearances in UK, US, Canada, and UAE.

Recent Experience

Our team of Security Engineers recently completed the entire Security System Design for the AP1000 sites at Vogtle Units 3 & 4. We created all documentation, designs, and analyses for the sites utilizing the most efficient methods, ensuring regulatory requirements were met and operating costs were kept at a minimum.
