 Westinghouse to Help Upgrade Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plants

Westinghouse Electric signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate with Ukrainian company PJSC Turboatom to increase the capacity of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants.
National Nuclear Energy Generating Company Energoatom (NNEGC Energoatom) is looking into how to increase the capacity of its VVER-1000 (V-320) reactors up to 110 percent of the nominal level. There are currently 13 1,000-MW VVER-1000 reactors operating in Ukraine.
Westinghouse began work in Ukraine in 1992 through the supply of safety-related upgrades to the country’s nuclear fleet in the mid-1990s. An engineering center was subsequently established. Westinghouse also has a joint venture for almost 20 years that trains approximately 200 employees to European Union and U.S. standards, but are also developing products tailored for Ukrainian and global markets.
