Westinghouse Electric Co. has agreed to acquire Rolls-Royce’s Civil Nuclear Systems and Services business in North America, expanding the Cranberry Township-headquartered company’s global capabilities in digital, engineering services, plant automation and monitoring systems, field services and manufacturing.

“Acquiring Rolls-Royce will strengthen our ability to serve the nuclear operating fleet through an expanded presence in our core business while adding new digital offerings,” Westinghouse President and CEO Patrick Fragman said, in a statement. “This acquisition is an important step in our growth strategy.”

Rolls-Royce operates 11 sites in Canada, France, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

A leading supplier of nuclear plant products and technologies to utilities throughout the world, Westinghouse technology is the basis for approximately one-half of the world’s operating nuclear plants.
