Westinghouse Electric Co. signed two instrumentation and controls (I&C) system cooperation agreements with China’s State Nuclear Power Automation System Engineering Co. (SNPAS).

One of the agreements extends a cooperation signed in November 2010 for China AP1000 nuclear plant I&C systems. The extension covers the strategic relationship of Westinghouse and SNPAS in supplying I&C systems for new AP1000 projects into the future. The second agreement covers I&C systems for future global SNPTC nuclear power plant projects using designs derived from the AP1000 design by SNPTC. Westinghouse and SNPTC signed a memorandum of understanding that covers a broad range of areas of cooperation; the second agreement falls under the strategic nuclear technology partnership.
