Westinghouse in co-operation for Czech nuclear plants

Westinghouse Electric has announced a strategic co-operation with Hutní montáže, a Czech construction/installation company, in preparation for the potential construction of Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plants in the Czech Republic and regionally.

If Westinghouse is awarded the AP1000 project, Hutní montáže would be responsible for performing the majority of the mechanical installation and corresponding construction testing, including assembly and installation of the containment vessel (CV).

Hutní montáže could also provide heavy lifting cranes and rigging to offload, transport on-site and set components into the plant, including modules, the CV, and major nuclear steam supply system and balance of plant equipment.
