 WESTINGHOUSE FORMS NUCLEAR SERVICES DIVISION IN CANADA
 HAMILTON, Ontario, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Electric Corporation's (NYSE: WX) nuclear services division announced today the formation of the Westinghouse Nuclear Services Canadian Division, which will supply products and services for the inspection and maintenance of Canada's nuclear power reactors.
 The business will operate as a unit of the Westinghouse global nuclear service business.
 Through an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement, the Nuclear Services Canadian Division will manufacture non-destructive eddy current examination probes using technology from Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL). The division also will provide engineering and field services related to eddy-current inspections for other power generation and industrial operations.
 The Nuclear Services Canadian Division also will offer other related inspection services, repair and modification services and power plant outage planning in conjunction with the company's nuclear services division based in Monroeville, Pa.
 The new division, based in Deep River, Ontario, will initially employ 10 people on a full-time basis, and expand to teams of 30 or more as required on specific job sites. "We are particularly excited about the growth potential of Nuclear Services Canadian Division because of the opportunities it provides to promote Canadian exports, research and development and employment," said Westinghouse Canada President Gary Graham.
 Thomas A. Christopher, general manager of the Westinghouse Electric Nuclear Services Division, noted, "The eddy current inspection products developed by AECL are highly regarded throughout the nuclear industry internationally and complement our existing technology in this area. We will use this expanded technology base and our capabilities in total plant services to focus on enhancing the operating performance and availability of Canada's nuclear reactors."
 David F. Torgerson, vice president of reactor development at AECL Research, said, "AECL is pleased to cooperate with Westinghouse in this important initiative and to be part of the creation of a new Canadian division spun out from our eddy-current expertise."
 Canada's 20 operating nuclear power plants are based on pressurized heavy water reactor technology. Collectively, the plants generate 15,422 megawatts of electricity.
 Westinghouse Electric Corporation is a leader in the nuclear power industry, and is the single largest supplier of services to the worldwide nuclear utility market.
