Bruce Power will be presenting at a hearing before the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) today outlining how the company will maintain its unwavering commitment to safety and pressure tube integrity. Today’s presentation by Bruce Power can be found here.
As outlined in Bruce Power’s presentation to the Commission, pressure tube integrity is based on a number of factors and high levels of safety continue to be demonstrated to ensure the integrity of our pressure tubes through comprehensive inspections, verification and layers of safety.
Bruce Power has requested the Commission approve the restart of Unit 3 from its current planned maintenance outage and the return to service of Units 4, 5, 7 and 8 from any future unplanned outages, by demonstrating a high level of safety and compliance with CNSC requirements. The company will continue to provide the CNSC additional information related to the two requests identified in the supplementary submission to the Commission that can be found here.
Bruce Power is committed to Safety First and this value drives every decision we make and every activity we do and we understand how important that commitment is to our community. Bruce Power is also committed to transparency and has proactively shared information with community leaders, including Indigenous communities, along with members of the general public, CNSC, and within our industry. Here is a link to a video, which explains the steps we take to confirm safety and integrity.
