Westinghouse emerging from bankruptcy, capable of delivering India nuclear reactors: Perry 17.4.2018 General News
US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said today that Westinghouse Electric Co is emerging out of bankruptcy and is now capable of delivering the planned six nuclear reactors to India on time. On his first visit to India, Perry said India must look at "broad portfolio" of energy sources to deliver reliable electricity to its growing population and not just at affordability. Civil nuclear cooperation has been a cornerstone of US-India relations. The 2016 deal, under which Westinghouse was to build six AP1000 reactors in Andhra Pradesh, was concluded after more than a decade of diplomatic efforts. But it was in limbo after Westinghouse in March last year filed for bankruptcy following an estimated USD 13 billion of cost overruns at two US projects. "The most important development is that Westinghouse is coming out of its bankruptcy" by shedding problematic parts of the company, Perry said. "Westinghouse is exceptionally good at building reactors. They are the best reactor manufacturer in the ..
