WESTINGHOUSE WINS WISCONSIN STEAM GENERATOR CONTRACT

 PITTSBURGH, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Electric Corporation (NYSE: WX) said today that Wisconsin Electric Power Company has awarded it a contract to supply two replacement steam generators for the utility's Point Beach 2 nuclear power plant, a 497-megawatt Westinghouse pressurized water reactor located near Two Rivers, Wis.
 Design for the steam generators will be based on the Westinghouse Model F type steam generators that have experienced outstanding performance over more than a decade of operations. In addition to the steam generators, which will be delivered in 1996, the contract calls for licensing support activity.
 Since entering operation in 1972, Point Beach Unit 2 consistently has been one of the best performing nuclear units in the United States. Together with Point Beach Unit 1, also a Westinghouse PWR, the two units were rated the most efficient nuclear plant in the United States during the five years 1986-1990, according to the Utility Data Institute.
 The new steam generators will be manufactured at the Westinghouse Pensacola Manufacturing Plant in Florida.
 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.
