Nuclear power splits atoms to create energy; yet, when it comes to shaping a carbon-free future, Westinghouse is committed to harnessing an even more potent source of power: The strength of human ingenuity.
Our company has a 130-year history of innovation that began when our founder, George Westinghouse, commercialized the alternating current and forever changed the way electricity was distributed.
Our legacy continues in the nuclear era, which originated when we built the world’s first commercial pressurized water reactor in Shippingport, Pennsylvania. More than 60 years later, 430 nuclear reactors operate around the world using Westinghouse technology.
While we are proud of our past, its real value lies in providing a guide for our future. As the world strives to address the challenges of a changing climate, we are constantly rethinking the way we deliver nuclear energy.
From the efficient and economical AP1000® nuclear plant to the new eVinci™ micro-reactor for remote energy applications, we are leading the way with the development of new nuclear technologies that will enable us to share the benefits of this reliable, clean, safe and economical source of energy for generations to come.
Focused on our customers' success, Westinghouse is committed to delivering innovative nuclear energy solutions by leveraging our global insights, CANDU® expertise, collaborative mindset, and best-in-class technology. We are proud to play a key role in accelerating Canada’s energy sustainability and achieving its net-zero goals.
A growing team of more than 250 experts in 6 offices across Canada, we have been advancing the art and science of nuclear power plant design and operations for more than 60 years. When it comes to operating nuclear power plants, utilities need a partner that understands what it takes to maximize safety, performance, and longevity. Westinghouse is the proven choice for end-to-end services and technologies from fuel manufacturing through to decommissioning and waste management.
