In a move to support Bruce Power’s vision of long-term operational excellence, NPX has signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate with Bruce Power on its modernization projects.

This agreement expands the companies’ innovation initiatives, which currently include Major Component Replacement, Engineering, and Project Controls. NPX and Bruce Power will blend their skills for the implementation of modern tools and technologies to digitize processes and procedures, including Outage execution, said Jay Hitchcock, Bruce Power’s Department Manager, Business Modernization.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with NPX,” Hitchcock said. “We have been impressed with the work NPX has done with us, and look forward to our ongoing collaboration. This initiative will drive further efficiency improvements and simplify work processes for our staff and partners.”

NPX also officially launched its headquarters in Kincardine today. “The office is home to 10 Innovation Catalysts, with plans to add further staff in January”, said Bharath Nangia, NPX’s CEO.

“It is ever so rewarding to work with a customer that seeks and encourages innovation like Bruce Power does,” Nangia said. “We’re going to keep this initiative simple, and bring our start-up mindset to making processes a lot easier for staff to navigate. We recognize the vital role that nuclear energy plays in Ontario, and our mission is to undertake projects like this for long-term sustainability.”

New partnerships like these, combined with an engaged local presence, will help ensure Bruce Power continues to provide clean, reliable, low-cost power, while enabling the company to execute its Life-Extension Program on time and on budget, Hitchcock added.
