Bruce Power has taken an important step toward its refurbishment preparations by opening the Centre for Project Excellence on the Bruce site.

The centre will be dedicated to the company’s extensive planning activities to prepare for the successful execution of the first refurbishment, which begins in 2020.

“A key priority at Bruce Power is project excellence and that’s why preparing for the successful execution of our refurbishment program, which will begin in 2020, is an important focus for our organization,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “The opening of the Centre for Project Excellence is another important milestone as we prepare for the successful execution of future refurbishments that are important to our site, surrounding communities and the Province of Ontario.”

The Centre for Project Excellence is a 60,000 sq. ft. facility of combined office and warehouse space that will house the project team for the refurbishment preparations.
