Westinghouse has been delivering reliable BWR fuel intended for a global market for over half a century. The current BWR fuel products, including the standard SVEA-96 Optima 3, have been delivered as reloads since 2010 in the European market and are licensed in both EMEA and US. Our innovative, best-in-class TRITON11™ fuel design improves nuclear and thermal-hydraulic performance over any existing 11x11 or 10x10 BWR fuel design.
Westinghouse has delivered control rod blades (CRB) for BWR cores worldwide for more than 50 years. The current standard CRB product is the third generation, high performance CR 99, first delivered in 2007 to both the EMEA and US markets. To meet demands of all potential CRB operating modes as displayed in EMEA BWRs, Westinghouse has developed CR 99+, delivered to Nordic BWRs since 2013. In the case the intended use for the CRB solely is shut-down purpose, Westinghouse also delivers the mid-duty CRB CR 82M-1, which has been manufactured for more than 25 years.
