Westinghouse Electric Company will supply 12 replacement steam generators for EDF’s French nuclear fleet. The nuclear technology provider, which was bought by Toshiba Corp and The Shaw Group for over $5,000million in 2007, will design and make the steam generators for the French energy company.

Yves Brachet from Westinghouse said: “The signature of this contract is the fulfillment of the hard work performed over the past few years in developing our activities and products in accordance with EDF’s needs and French regulatory requirements.”

Westinghouse technology is the basis for roughly half of the world’s operating nuclear plants, including 60% of those in the United States. EDF has over 28 million customers in France and has recently been given the contract to build the UK’s new generation nuclear plants.
