Shaw has a rich legacy through acquisition of more than 60 years of expertise in the nuclear industry, including a pioneering history of firsts.  These firsts included the design and construction of the Y12 facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and engineering and design of Shippingport, the first commercial nuclear power plant in the United States. Shaw was also the original engineer/constructor for 17 U.S. nuclear power plants, developed the first U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission-approved Nuclear Quality Assurance Program, and completed the first license application for a spent fuel dry storage facility.

Today, Shaw continues that leadership, offering a wide range of nuclear services to commercial and government clients worldwide.  We have provided services to 95 percent of all U.S. nuclear plants, and are currently providing services on the only two active restarts in North America.

Shaw provides new plant design and construction services worldwide. Of note is our role as part of the AP1000 Consortium with Westinghouse Electric Company, of which we are a 20 percent owner. This consortium was selected by the People's Republic of China State Nuclear Power Technology Company (SNPTC) to build four new nuclear power plants using Westinghouse's AP1000 passive Generation III technology. This groundbreaking contract will provide a sustainable source of critically needed power generation for the People's Republic of China.

Demand for nuclear power generating facilities continues to grow, marking the beginning of a global nuclear power renaissance. Shaw, a pioneer in the nuclear services industry, is poised to serve this dynamic market with a wide range of capabilities backed by a history of achievements.
