With over 40 years of experience, Westinghouse works at every operating nuclear power plant, every major Department of Energy (DOE) site closure project, and every commercial nuclear power plant decommissioning project in the U.S. We have supported more than 1,100 refueling outages, and routinely provide radiation protection personnel for more than 6,000 positions annually.
We understand the demands of the industry and have the expertise required to apply solid fundamentals to ensure a high performing organization to protect workers, the public and the environment. Our personnel work alongside your facility staff, are outsourced for specific department functions or are completely turnkey.
Our objective is to partner with you to achieve your goals of reducing personnel radiation exposure, personnel risk, human performance errors, critical path schedule time and outage costs. We realize cost savings through cutting edge technology, remote performance of hazardous tasks, effective team communication, real time third party and independent verification and shorter overall outage durations.
In addition to operational radiation protection, Westinghouse offers decontamination, decommissioning, and environmental management services for commercial nuclear power and government facilities.
Westinghouse provides professional and technical support services to nuclear and other facilities to implement ALARA practices, source-term reduction and environmental monitoring, as well as services that encompass radiological waste solutions, robotic cleaning, and specialty coatings. We offer a wide range of technically advanced equipment including decontamination and cleaning technologies, HEPA ventilation systems, communications, and video, audio, and telemetry for remote monitoring of radiation workers.
We pride ourselves in our ability to leverage the skill sets of our corporate management and subject matter experts, backed by a pool of industry and regulatory professionals, to offer innovative technical approaches. Focused on superior customer service and cost effectiveness, each project is customized to our client with unique scope, duration and cost.
Today, we are a leader in identifying competent individuals to begin a career as radiation protection technicians with a dedicated recruiting team supported by detailed processes and proprietary software. We are certified by EPRI to train and qualify candidates using the Standardized Task Evaluation process, and we have trained the majority of all new Junior Health Physics Technicians for the industry.
