Westinghouse enters partnership to potentially deliver nuclear power plants in Czech Republic

Westinghouse Electric Co. on Sept. 11 said it has entered a partnership with Czech construction and installation company Hutní montáže a.s, in preparation for the potential construction of Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plants in the Czech Republic and regionally.

Westinghouse has submitted a tender to Czech utility ČEZ for the construction of two AP1000 reactors at the Temelín nuclear power plant site.

If Westinghouse is awarded the AP1000 project in the Czech Republic, Hutní montáže would be responsible for performing the vast majority of the mechanical installation and corresponding construction testing, including assembly and installation of the containment vessel (CV). Hutní montáže could also provide heavy lifting cranes and rigging to offload, transport on-site and set components into the plant, including modules, the CV, and major nuclear steam supply system (NSSS) and balance of plant equipment.
