Westinghouse Contracts with Finland’s TVO to Deliver New Reactor Components
Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it has signed a contract with Teollisuuden Voima Oy (TVO) in Finland to deliver new feedwater spargers to the Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) Units 1 and 2.
The scope of the contract is for designing, analyzing, manufacturing and installing eight feedwater spargers. Feedwater spargers distribute water from feedwater lines through the reactor pressure vessel. Westinghouse will apply advanced techniques to increase the feedwater spargers’ resistance to thermal fatigue, improving operational life, as well as reduce thermal loads of the surrounding structures.
“Throughout our history, Westinghouse has worked with companies around the world to deliver practical innovations that solve their most pressing operational challenges and promote safe operations,” said David Howell, Westinghouse senior vice president, Operating Plants Business. “We are pleased that through this project, TVO has provided Westinghouse an opportunity to help them operate these Olkiluoto units more effectively for the long term.”
The design and analysis work will be done by Westinghouse in Västerås and the manufacturing at a local supplier in Finland. All equipment will be delivered to the Olkiluoto site during spring 2017. A Westinghouse outage services team will install the first four spargers within the planned outage time in May 2017.
“This contract confirms the trust TVO has in Westinghouse and our continued ability to deliver state-of-the-art solutions to the mechanical and technical challenges utilities experience in plants’ operations,” said Aziz Dag, Westinghouse vice president and managing director, Northern and Eastern Europe.
