Nuclear Energy

With a long heritage in nuclear technology and a vision for the future, BWXT is on the forefront of innovation to make safe, dependable, clean energy not just a concept, but a reality.

We have supplied the nuclear industry with more than 1,300 large, heavy components worldwide. With dedicated manufacturing operations in the U.S. and Canada, BWXT is the only heavy nuclear component manufacturer in North America. We have the skills, knowledge and infrastructure for fabricating pressure vessels, reactors, steam generators, heat exchangers, valves and other auxiliary equipment. Notably, we're the only North American company to continuously manufacture nuclear steam generators for the industry since the 1950’s.

This expertise paved the way for our latest commercial development, the BWXT mPower™ reactor, a scalable, modular system. Our innovative design presents a practical option to the marketplace.
