Bruce Power receives its strongest CNSC report card in its 11-year history
TIVERTON, ON – August 16, 2012 – Bruce Power’s performance received a strong rating from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), during a hearing in Ottawa on Aug. 15.
“We are proud to receive such a strong report card from the CNSC,” said Len Clewett, Bruce Power’s Chief Nuclear Officer. “There is much more to operating a nuclear facility than producing electricity, and the strength of our report card shows we continue to be diligent in the safe, reliable operation of our units.”
The CNSC report card rated Bruce Power as ‘Fully Satisfactory,’ the highest rating, for our security function and our conventional health and safety. Every other aspect of the site was rated ‘Satisfactory’ by the nuclear regulator.
“One of Bruce Power’s values is to operate in a culture of continuous improvement,” Clewett added. “While we are encouraged by the CNSC’s report card, we will continue to seek ways to improve our operations to make our site safer and stronger.”
This was the strongest CNSC report card in Bruce Power’s 11-year history.
