Mitsubishi opens engineering center to support nuclear business in U.S.

Mitsubishi Nuclear Energy Systems Inc. (MNES) has opened its Charlotte Engineering Center to support the building of new nuclear power plants and supply replacement components, engineering and maintenance services for operating nuclear power facilities.

In addition to many of its engineering functions, MNES has moved project management, quality assurance, marketing and some other administrative functions to the Center from its Arlington, Va., Corporate Headquarters. The Charlotte Engineering Center now provides the primary support to the company’s new-build projects in the United States.

Mitsubishi’s U.S.-APWR, a Gen III+ pressurized water reactor design for the U.S. market, has been selected by Luminant for its proposed Comanche Peak Units 3 and 4, and Dominion for a prospective third unit at the company’s North Anna Power Station in central Virginia.
