Westinghouse Electric Co. LLC announced the formation of Westinghouse Electric Canada Inc. to better serve its Canadian customers, strengthen its ties with Canadian suppliers, and align itself more appropriately with the regulations and requirements in Canada to meet growing business opportunities there. The headquarters will be located in Toronto, Ontario.
Westinghouse currently has more than 150 Canadian suppliers that provide a range of products and services for the Westinghouse product lines of fuel, services, automation, and nuclear power plants. Additionally, by establishing Westinghouse Canada, Westinghouse is further positioning itself for future new nuclear power plant business there. Utilities in Canada are expressing interest in the Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized waterreactor (PWR) and the Westinghouse Small Modular Reactor, a 200 MWe class integral PWR currently under development that is suited for smaller electrical grids, distributed generation, and process heat requirements.
