WESTINGHOUSE TO SUPPLY STEAM GENERATORS TO SOUTHERN NUCLEAR

 WESTINGHOUSE TO SUPPLY STEAM GENERATORS TO SOUTHERN NUCLEAR
 PITTSBURGH, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Electric Corporation (NYSE: WX) today announced it has signed a contract with the Southern Nuclear Operating Company to supply six replacement steam generators for Alabama Power Company's Farley Nuclear Power Plant, units 1 and 2.
 The contract has a potential value of approximately $100 million, Westinghouse said.
 The order is the first to be placed by a utility that participated in the Steam Generator Replacement Group, an organization of nine utilities that are pooling resources on issues related to replacement steam generators, said Nathaniel D. Woodson, vice president and general manager of the Westinghouse energy systems business unit.
 The new steam generators will employ features of the Westinghouse Model F design that have operated with outstanding performance for more than a decade.
 Since the present steam generators at the Farley units are expected to operate efficiently for several more years, the new steam generators will be delivered late in this decade or early in the next, based on a schedule to be finalized by Southern Nuclear. Once Southern Nuclear determines the replacement is necessary, Westinghouse will deliver the generators to the site within 42 months.
 Westinghouse supplied the 850-megawatt pressurized water reactors in operation at the two-unit Farley Nuclear Power Plant near Dothan, Ala. Unit 1 began commercial operation in 1977, with unit 2 following in 1981. The plant is owned by Alabama Power Company and operated by Southern Nuclear Operating Company. Both companies are subsidiaries of The Southern Company (NYSE: SO), with headquarters in Atlanta.
 Westinghouse is the world's foremost supplier of nuclear power technology, systems, fuel and services. More than 170 nuclear plants worldwide employ Westinghouse's pressurized water reactor technology.
