Bruce Power statement regarding CNSC penalty

Bruce Power continues to prioritize the safety and quality of installed components as we progress with our Major Component Replacement Project activities.

The company recently failed to meet CNSC expectations for the segregation of replacement components while quality assurance checks were being completed on these materials, which are integral to the Unit 6 Major Component Replacement Project. This resulted in an administrative penalty being issued against the company by the regulator. The components have since been deemed to be code compliant and fit for use, and safety was never compromised.

Bruce Power places the highest regard and utmost priority on the safety of people, the environment, nuclear safety and compliance with regulatory requirements. We are working to identify and implement corrective actions to address opportunities for improvement at Bruce Power and with our suppliers.
