Westinghouse Electric Co. introduced a 200 MWe integral pressurized water reactor, its entry into small modular reactors.

Westinghouse said it also is actively working to prepare for the upcoming U.S. Department of Energy SMR program and aims to be the leading industry collaborator with the government.

Westinghouse said its small modular reactor leverages lessons learned from its AP1000 plant design, currently under construction in China.
