At Westinghouse, innovation is in our DNA. We are creative. We think differently. We reimagine the possible across the nuclear industry every day. We continuously work towards providing cutting-edge products and services that are not only needed for today, but for our tomorrow.

Yet, thinking differently must go beyond our technical applications and products. We must incorporate innovation into all aspects of our business. In doing so, we can drive greater efficiency, create greater growth and strengthen our culture.

One area where innovative thinking can be impactful is sustainability. Protecting our planet and restoring our earth are not abstract concepts because of the carbon-free technology our teams create and deploy. From the efficient and economical AP1000 nuclear plant to the new eVinci micro-reactor for remote energy applications, we are leading the way with the development of new nuclear technologies that will enable us to share the benefits of this reliable, clean, safe and economical source of energy for generations to come.

Focused on our customers’ success, Westinghouse is committed to delivering innovative nuclear energy solutions by leveraging our global insights, CANDU expertise, collaborative mindset, and best-in-class technology. We are proud to play a key role in accelerating Canada’s energy sustainability and achieving its net-zero goals.

Fueled by a team of more than 200 experts in 6 offices across Canada, we have been advancing the art and science of nuclear power plant design and operations for more than 60 years. When it comes to operating nuclear power plants, utilities need a partner that understands what it takes to maximize safety, performance, and longevity. Westinghouse is the proven choice for end-to-end services and technologies from fuel manufacturing through to decommissioning and waste management.
