Nuclear power splits atoms to create energy; yet, when it comes to shaping a carbon-free future, Westinghouse is committed to harnessing an even more potent source of power: The strength of human ingenuity.

Profile Description

Our company has a 130-year history of innovation that began when our founder, George Westinghouse, commercialized the alternating current and forever changed the way electricity was distributed.

Our legacy continues in the nuclear era, which originated when we built the world’s first commercial pressurized water reactor in Shippingport, Pennsylvania. More than 60 years later, 430 nuclear reactors operate around the world using Westinghouse technology.

While we are proud of our past, its real value lies in providing a guide for our future. As the world strives to address the challenges of a changing climate, we are constantly rethinking the way we deliver nuclear energy.

From the efficient and economical AP1000® nuclear plant to the new eVinci™ microreactor 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.
