Westinghouse Electric Co. entered into a $400 million agreement with South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. (SCE&G), a unit of Scana Corp., to provide nuclear fuel fabrication services for the V.C. Summer nuclear power plant in South Carolina.

The contract includes fuel fabrication services for the existing reactor there, as well as for two new AP1000 nuclear reactors currently under construction. Delivery is scheduled for 2012 and the contract runs through 2033.

The agreement is consistent with SCE&G's contract with Westinghouse and the Shaw Group to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the two new AP1000 units, V.C. Summer Units 2 and 3, which will be owned by SCE&G and the South Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper).
