Preparing for MCR
Bruce Power has built facilities on site and in the community to prepare for the MCR Project. Located in Kincardine, the 129,000-square-foot MCR Training Facility is home to approximately 330 office workers and 150 tradespeople. The building includes a two-storey, modern office space as well as a shop area with welding booths and training mock-ups that replicate the environment inside Bruce Power’s reactor vault. This is company’s largest off-site facility constructed to support MCR. On the Bruce Power site, more than 250,000 square feet of buildings have been constructed since 2016.
Approximately 60 supplier partners have also opened offices or manufacturing facilities in Bruce, Grey and Huron counties since 2016 and the majority of these organizations play a role in the MCR Project. Some of the major project partners include Shoreline Power Group which now has an facility in Kincardine, Nuvia with its place in Tiverton, and SNC-Lavalin has opened an office in Port Elgin. Bruce Power and the County of Bruce are working to transform the area into a nuclear energy-inspired economic hub and sustain the company as a world leader in the nuclear sector.
