Westinghouse restructures plant

Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it is splitting its Nuclear Power Plants product line into two distinct organizations of Nuclear Power Plant Project Delivery and Nuclear Power Plant Business Development to further strengthen the company and better position it for future growth.

The newly-created Nuclear Power Plant Project Delivery organization, which will focus exclusively on the delivery of new plant projects to Westinghouse customers, will be led by Senior Vice President Deva Chari. In this role, Mr. Chari will be responsible for interfacing with Westinghouse customers on a day-to-day basis and ensuring that key project milestones are met safely on schedule, and in a high-quality and cost-effective manner.
