Westinghouse wins China contracts

Westinghouse Electric Company has signed two first-of-a-kind nuclear fuel-related contracts with companies in China. The first contract calls for Westinghouse to provide engineering services and 10 metric tons of zirconium-alloy TREX to Shanghai Gaotai Rare and Precious Metals Company Ltd for use in production of fuel cladding for the growing Chinese nuclear fuel market. The contract provides the material necessary for the first Chinese manufacturing of tubing for the newly started Qinshan-III nuclear power plant. The second contract encompasses a technology and a five-year engineering co-operation agreement for core design and related fields with the Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Institute (SNERDI). This international agreement will enable future cooperation between Westinghouse and SNERDI in the upcoming planned expansion of nuclear power generation in China.
