Bruce Power continues to grow, this time opening new offices in Saugeen Shores to house approximately 35 people preparing for future refurbishments.

Workers are expected to move into recently renovated office space in the former EMA grocery store at the south end of Port Elgin by Aug. 31, while others are already working from leased space in the business park at the north end of town.

“With all that we have underway on site today, we’ve been virtually bursting at the seams,” says Duncan Hawthorne, President and Chief Executive Office of Bruce Power.  “As the expected workload grows, we’ll continue to examine our options offsite in Saugeen Shores and Kincardine.”

The new office, which could eventually accommodate as many as 70 people, will be home to project managers, planners, estimators, engineers and clerical workers.

Last month, Bruce Power announced it will focus on the refurbishment of its remaining Bruce A and B units in order to supply Ontario with 6,300 megawatts of electricity.

For Bruce Power, refurbishing its remaining units could create up to 3,000 construction jobs and represent a multi-billion dollar investment over the next 10 years. It would also secure the long-term employment of up to 4,000 people to operate the site’s eight units over their extended lives.
