Westinghouse signs contracts TVO for Olkiluoto control rods and inspections

Westinghouse Electric Company on Monday signed a long-term contract with the Finnish nuclear power company Teollisuuden Voima Oyj for deliveries of control rods to their two boiling water reactors (BWRs), Olkiluoto-1 and -2, until 2038.

Westinghouse said TVO will uses Westinghouse’s optimised CR 99+ design, which is equipped with additional neutron absorption capacity, resulting in lower costs, decreased control rod handling and reduced active waste.

This contract follows a long-term BWR fuel agreement between TVO and Westinghouse announced in October 2019 for Westinghouse’s Triton11 fuel design to be used at Olkiluoto-1 and -2.
