Westinghouse will prepare detailed construction plans and cost estimates for two potential AP1000 reactors at Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG’s) Darlington site.
“The plans and estimates would provide significant input in helping the Province of Ontario determine the baseload generation option that is best for Ontario’s ratepayers,” Westinghouse said.
Westinghouse Americas president Joe Zwetolitz said that the company “is pleased to participate in the province’s information-gathering process.” The company has also opened an office in Toronto to better serve the Canadian market.
Some 100 Canadian suppliers currently provide a wide range of products and services for the Westinghouse product lines, the company said. “Additionally, a large percentage of the scope for the potential construction of AP1000 reactor units at Darlington would be sourced from Ontario or elsewhere in Canada.”
