Bruce Power’s Unit 7 reached 465 days of continuous service today, matching the long-run record for the Bruce B unit.
“Unit 7 has been an absolute workhorse for the people of Ontario since its last planned maintenance outage,” said Pierre Pilon, Senior Vice President, Bruce B. “The reliability of the unit is a testament to our employees who work hard to maintain and operate these reactors to such high standards. By providing a reliable source of safe, clean and low-cost nuclear electricity, the people of Ontario benefit from Unit 7’s long run as well.”
Unit 8 holds the long-run record for a Bruce B unit at 580 days followed by Unit 6 at 560 days and Unit 5 at 520.
