The U.S.-based Westinghouse Electric Company signed a contract with Ukraine’s state nuclear operator Energoatom on Nov. 22. The agreement outlines the construction of two AP1000 reactors at the power plant in Khmelnytskyi, a regional capital in western Ukraine.
In September, Westinghouse signed a memorandum with Energoatom to deliver four nuclear reactors for up to $30 billion.
Ukraine’s aging nuclear plants provide more than half of the country’s electricity.
