Global leader in nuclear power Westinghouse Electric Company signed memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with three companies in Slovenia at the beginning of April.
The MOUs will cover cooperation on the potential AP1000 plant projects across Central and Eastern Europe.
“These partnerships will enable us to work hand-in-hand with leading local suppliers to deliver the highest international standards of quality, safety and reliability in Slovenia and within Europe,” said Elias Gedeon, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations, Westinghouse Energy Systems.
The company Numip will deliver engineering, construction and maintenance services for conventional power and processes across various industries. Elmont will provide ongoing support for the maintenance of electrical equipment. And finally, SIPRO inženiring will bring project planning and management solutions, technology, and product development support, along with several other services.
Westinghouse is already very active in the CEE region. In November 2021, it signed agreements with Ukraine’s state enterprise Energoatom on the construction of two new nuclear power units at the Khmelnytskyy Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) site. More recently, in April, together with French company Framatome, Westinghouse won the tender to supply nuclear fuel assemblies for the Temelín NPP, in Czechia.
