Westinghouse’s 130-year history of innovation began when our founder, George Westinghouse, commercialized the alternating current and forever changed the way electricity was distributed.
Our legacy continues in the nuclear era, which originated when we built the world’s first commercial pressurized water reactor in Shippingport, Pa. More than 60 years later, 430 nuclear reactors operate around the world using Westinghouse technology.
While we are proud of our past, its real value lies in providing a guide for our future. As the world strives to address the challenges of a changing climate, we are constantly rethinking how we deliver nuclear energy.
From the efficient AP1000 nuclear plant to the new eVinci micro reactor for remote energy applications, we are leading the way with developing new nuclear technologies that let us share the benefits of this reliable, clean, safe and economical source of energy for generations to come.
