Westinghouse Wins Competitive Bid for Delivery of Nuclear Fuel to Spain
Westinghouse Electric Company today announced the signing of a contract for manufacture and delivery of boiling water reactor (BWR) fuel to Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant (CNC) in Spain in 2019 and 2021. CNC is wholly owned by Iberdrola Generación Nuclear S.A.
“The reliability and excellent performance of our fuel products are the main reasons for the continued trust Iberdrola has shown us. It also confirms our position as a leading supplier of BWR fuel in Europe,” says Aziz Dag, Westinghouse vice president and managing director, Northern Europe.
Westinghouse will deliver its extensively proven SVEA-96 Optima2 design, which has been operating flawlessly for more than a decade in CNC. Under the terms of the contract, CNC will also have the opportunity to implement TRITON11™, the latest BWR fuel innovation from Westinghouse. TRITON11 offers best-in-class uranium utilization, and is designed to give utilities the power to enhance the fuel economy and capacity factors.
“We are pleased to be able to continue the successful cooperation between our companies,” said Xavier Coll Sugrañes, Westinghouse vice president and managing director, Southern Europe.
The fuel will be manufactured at the Westinghouse fuel fabrication facility in Västerås, Sweden, which will also provide the included engineering and fuel services support.

Laser System Partnership Sets Sights on Ending Toll Road Delays17.10.2019 22:00:00 CEST | Press release
A new technology partnership is set to transform road tolling for both providers and motorists alike by utilizing the latest advances in lidar technology and data analytics. Cepton Technologies, Inc. has collaborated with industrial perception and machine learning experts, MechaSpin, to develop a lidar-based solution that produces detailed 3D classification of vehicles in real time for automated tolling applications. This next-generation solution combines Cepton’s Sora-P60 with MechaSpin’s MSx software to enable immediate profiling and classification of vehicles at highway speeds in a wide range of weather and lighting conditions. Traditional tolling systems often depend on physical infrastructure to reduce vehicle speed, or tollbooths to allow for manual processing, which can cause congestion and frustration amongst motorists. Advanced systems that allow for faster tolling, however, are often subject to abuses such as leakage, while road-based sensors often fail due to wear and tear.
