Westinghouse Electric Company announced the full acquisition of long-standing partner Tecnatom from Endesa after obtaining all regulatory approvals. Together, Westinghouse and Tecnatom will continue to provide critical services to the Spanish nuclear industry and its global base of customers.
Westinghouse first acquired 50% of Tecnatom in 2021 and operated the company jointly with Endesa. Since then, Westinghouse and Tecnatom partnered successfully in support of projects and commercial opportunities, particularly in inspection services, training and digital solutions. By acquiring the remaining 50%, Westinghouse can fully integrate Tecnatom’s resources, capabilities and products into Westinghouse, in order to better serve the installed fleet of nuclear operators and new build opportunities globally.
“We are very pleased to welcome Tecnatom into the Westinghouse team,” said Patrick Fragman, Westinghouse President and Chief Executive Officer. “The partnership established in 2021 with Endesa revealed the depth of expertise and potential of Tecnatom teams, complementing exceptionally well the portfolio of Westinghouse's existing activities. We are looking forward to integrating Tecnatom fully into Westinghouse, at a time when our utility and industrial customers require the highest level of expertise and performance to help them successfully operate their existing operations and implement their plans for new capacities.”
