WESTINGHOUSE SIGNS CONTRACTS FOR CZECH NUCLEAR PLANTS

 PITTSBURGH, May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Electric Corporation (NYSE: WX) announced today that it signed two contracts to supply technology, equipment and services to the partially completed two-unit Temelin nuclear power station in the Czech Republic.
 Under terms of the contracts, Westinghouse will supply instrumentation and control (I&C) systems and nuclear fuel fabrication for the two 1,000-megawatt reactors located near Ceske Budejovice. Westinghouse signed the contracts with its customers, plant owner Ceske Energeticke Zavody (CEZ) and Skoda Prague, the primary plant supplier.
 The Westinghouse contracts are the largest yet awarded for safety- and performance-related upgrades of Soviet-designed nuclear reactors.
 "Today, Westinghouse and the Czech Republic have embarked on a partnership -- toward the completion of the Temelin plant -- to support their economic future and to add diversity to the Czech energy portfolio," said Nathaniel D. Woodson, vice president and general manager of the Westinghouse Energy Systems business unit.
 "Temelin is and always will be a Czech plant -- built by an experienced Czech nuclear industry for the benefit of the Czech people," said John B. Yasinsky, Westinghouse group president. "Westinghouse is proud to be working together with so many excellent Czech companies to enhance the plant's safety and performance."
 The instrumentation and control (I&C) systems that Westinghouse supplies will control all facets of the power plant. The design and fabrication of the Temelin I&C systems will be performed at Westinghouse facilities in Pittsburgh and Brussels, with participation of several companies in the Czech Republic.
 The nuclear fuel fabrication contract calls for Westinghouse to supply the first core and four reloads of fuel, along with related equipment and services for Temelin. The fuel will be manufactured at the Westinghouse commercial nuclear fuel division in Columbia, S.C. Skoda Plzen, the reactor vessel supplier for the two Temelin units, will participate with Westinghouse in fuel testing and development programs.
 Westinghouse is the world leader in nuclear power technology, services, and fuel supply. Over 170 operating nuclear plants worldwide are based on Westinghouse pressurized water reactor (PWR) technology.
