CEZ announced the bidding process in August to build two new nuclear reactors at the plant. The Temelin plants current two reactors were built by a Russian company, but Westinghouse provided instrumentation and controls and original fuel, said Westinghouse spokesman Scott Shaw.
Two more bidding processes will follow before CEZ selects the company that will build the two reactors. That decision is expected by early 2011. The units are to be operational in 2019.
Westinghouse is based in Cranberry, north of Pittsburgh. It is a group company of Toshiba Corp., Tokyo.
