Pittsburgh, Pa. (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
Westinghouse Electric Company subsidiary PaR Nuclear, Inc., today announced that it will begin doing business as Westinghouse Electric Company LLC, effective immediately. The change will align PaR Nuclear more closely and clearly within the Westinghouse Electric Company organization and brand.
Through its Shoreview, Minn., location, Westinghouse will continue to design, manufacture, install and service fuel-handling equipment and cranes for the commercial nuclear power industry, including the AP1000® nuclear plants. Additionally, the company will continue to provide equipment, including fuel transfer systems and new fuel elevators, for both pressurized and boiling water reactors.
Coincident with the company’s organizational realignment and branding initiatives, Westinghouse appointed Peter D. Adams as director, Fuel-handling Equipment and Crane Manufacturing.
“This is an exciting and invigorating time for Westinghouse and its fuel-handling equipment and crane manufacturing business,” Mr. Adams said. “We are undergoing changes to better support our commitment to providing high-quality components using leading edge nuclear manufacturing with a focus on customer satisfaction.”
Most recently, Mr. Adams was manager of Engineering Operations for PaR Nuclear and has more than 20 years of experience working with U.S. nuclear utilities, including Xcel Energy, Exelon and PSEG Nuclear. He began his career as a U.S. Navy nuclear mechanical operator on the USS Mississippi.
Westinghouse Electric Company, a group company of Toshiba Corporation (TKY:6502), is the world's pioneering nuclear energy company and is a leading supplier of nuclear plant products and technologies to utilities throughout the world. Westinghouse supplied the world's first pressurized water reactor in 1957 in Shippingport, Pa., U.S. Today, Westinghouse technology is the basis for approximately one-half of the world's operating nuclear plants.
