UK Research Centre to Study Manufacturing of Westinghouse SMR Parts

Westinghouse Electric Co. opened the company’s first outage control center in Madison, Pennsylvania.

The Westinghouse Outage Control Center will provide central monitoring and response to its utility customers’ outage operations at U.S. nuclear plant sites 24-7 during outage seasons. The center strengthens Westinghouse’s outage service delivery performance with centralized around-the-clock monitoring and emergent issue response.

“The Westinghouse Outage Control Center directly connects our field teams and customers to our central response team, who have a great amount of nuclear power plant outage expertise,” said David Howell, senior vice president, Westinghouse Automation and Field Services. “Our experienced WOCC staff will now be able to monitor every plant site where our field service teams are working to prioritize schedules and coordinate resources using real-time data exchange.”
