Westinghouse Spirit of Innovation Recognized

In today’s competitive energy markets, forward-thinking inventions aren’t a nice-to-have, they’re a need-to-have. Our inventors and innovators are a critical part of the success and growth of Westinghouse Electric Company, and recently 129 U.S.-based employees were recognized for their participation in the U.S. patent process during the past year.

This included the issuing of 32 U.S. patents, 42 applications for U.S. patents and 51 inventors who submitted disclosures during the past, corporate fiscal year. The following individuals were congratulated at the 2016 Westinghouse Patent Award Lunch for their achievements and contributions to the nuclear industry.
