commercial nuclear power industry, including the AP1000® nuclear plants.
Additionally, the company will continue to provide equipment, including fuel

initiatives, Westinghouse appointed Peter D. Adams as director, Fuel-handling
Equipment and Crane Manufacturing.

"This is an exciting and invigorating time for Westinghouse and its
fuel-handling equipment and crane manufacturing business," Mr. Adams said. "We
are undergoing changes to better support our commitment to providing
high-quality components using leading edge nuclear manufacturing with a focus
on customer satisfaction."

Most recently, Mr. Adams was manager of Engineering Operations for PaR Nuclear
and has more than 20 years of experience working with U.S. nuclear utilities,
including Xcel Energy, Exelon and PSEG Nuclear. He began his career as a U.S.
Navy nuclear mechanical operator on the USS Mississippi.
