Nuclear power plant maintenance to be performed by Westinghouse

Westinghouse Electric Co. was awarded a $35 million contract to install replacement reactor vessel heads and associated services for Axpo AG's 730 MWe Beznau nuclear power plant in Switzerland.


The installations are scheduled to occur during the plant's 2014 spring outage for Unit 1 and fall outage for Unit 2. Westinghouse will also install new plant computers from New Extended Information System during the planned outages.


As part of the contract, Westinghouse will create a temporary opening in each unit's concrete and steel containment using plasma cutting. The old heads will be removed from the reactor vessels and transferred from containment into the on-site radioactive waste intermediate storage building.
