Westinghouse to help advance nuclear power program in Poland

Westinghouse Electric Co. on June 20 signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National Center for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) in Poland and a letter of intent (LOI) with the Warsaw University of Technology marking the start of Westinghouse’s collaboration with the National Center for Nuclear Research aimed at developing an AP1000 Safety Analysis Technology Transfer Program.

The program will be developed in support of NCBJ’s objective to build up competences as the institute capable of providing advice to decision-makers in the Polish nuclear program. The scope of the program will provide AP1000 Safety Analysis Codes and related training.

The planned long-term collaboration in the area of scientific research, education and human resources development related to nuclear power and other advanced energy technologies will include research placements for students and employees; participation of Westinghouse employees in the teaching process at the University; and joint applications for international and national research projects.
