Westinghouse Global

Westinghouse Electric Company is a leading provider of nuclear plant products and services to utilities throughout the world – including fuel, service and maintenance, instrumentation and control, and advanced nuclear plant designs.

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.
