Last week, Westinghouse had the opportunity to participate in The Advanced Reactors Summit, hosted virtually by the United States Nuclear Industry Council (USNIC). A number of Westinghouse experts had the opportunity to share our commitment to carbon-free energy and the potential that exists for advanced reactors.
Innovative Technology and Industry Expertise offer a Simplified Path to Plant Modernization
When the world’s first AP1000® plants came online at the Sanmen and Haiyang sites with no major startup issues, it confirmed for the world what we already knew – our instrumentation and control (I&C) solutions bring peace of mind to utilities concerned about their systems’ reliability. But how does this success translate to operating plants across the globe?
There’s just over one month left to comment on Westinghouse’s AP1000 reactor technology, as part of the UK Generic Design Assessment (GDA), so have you had your say? The Westinghouse AP1000® Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) is currently being assessed by the UK’s Nuclear Regulators (the Office for Nuclear Regulation and the Environment Agency) under their GDA process.

The demand for electrical energy, along with innovative delivery certainty, is increasingly on the rise. With multiple nuclear power plant builds around the globe, there is much to be excited about in the nuclear power industry. After all, nuclear power is capable of meeting baseload demand and growth margin, which benefits and unifies people around the world, as well as future generations.
