Westinghouse Electric Co. has renewed a long-term alliance agreement with FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co. (FENOC). The alliance agreement includes a commitment to provide outage services for the Westinghouse-designed pressurized water reactors (PWRs) at Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station in Shippingport, Pa.
Westinghouse made the announcement in an April 5 news release. Westinghouse did not disclose a contract price for the agreement with the FirstEnergy (NYSE:FE) operation.
The award covers a five-year period beginning in 2016 and includes a renewal option. The agreement provides for refueling, reactor coolant pump and steam generator services and builds on the long history Westinghouse and FirstEnergy have of partnering on technology improvements.
The two Beaver Valley PWRs have a combined generating capacity of almost 1,800 MW.
