Unit 3 at the Bruce A generating station was safely taken off line on Saturday to begin its planned maintenance and inspection program in preparation for next years West Shift Outage.

During this short duration outage, workers will perform inspections and routine maintenance on a host of systems and components. Many of these activities cannot be performed while the unit is running and all are intended to ensure the safe and reliable production of electricity.

Units 4, 5, 6, and 8 remain at high power.
