Westinghouse Electric Company has signed an agreement to acquire BHI Energy. Incorporating BHI’s service quality and customer partnerships, Westinghouse will expand its capabilities and expertise in nuclear plant maintenance and modification services, industrial, power delivery, and complementary renewables including solar, wind and hydro power.

“Creating customer value and supporting the complete lifecycle of nuclear operations is a key part of our strategy, says Patrick Fragman, Westinghouse President and CEO. “Combining these complementary organizations will further strengthen our ability to serve the nuclear operating fleet through an expanded presence in our core business while setting a new standard in outage and maintenance efficiencies.”

BHI serves customers mainly across the United States and Canada with more than 8,500 team members during peak seasonal activity.
