Unit 3 at the Bruce A generating station was safely taken off line last night to begin its planned maintenance and inspection program.

During this outage, which will last approximately two months, 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 4,5,6,7 and 8 remain at high power.
