Bruce Power congratulates OPG for achieving milestone in Unit 2 refurbishment

Bruce Power congratulates Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for the successful completion of its reactor core reassembly program during the Unit 2 Darlington refurbishment project.

As part of this program, workers replaced 480 pressure tubes, 960 end fittings and thousands of component fittings, while remaining on time and on budget.

Hundreds of Ontario-based workers and companies have helped OPG reach this milestone, and many of these same skilled tradespeople and supplier partners will complete similar tasks on Bruce Power’s Unit 6 Major Component Replacement (MCR) Project, which begins in January 2020, said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO.

“OPG and Bruce Power have spent the past three years collaborating and sharing innovative ideas and lessons learned, and we are focused on delivering results for the people of Ontario,” Rencheck said. “Bruce Power is in the fourth year of its Life-Extension Program, which will allow the site to operate to 2064, and, like OPG, we remain on time and on budget, while performing this important work to the highest level.”
