Bruce Power launched a planned inspection and maintenance of Bruce B Unit 8 yesterday.

During this planned outage, which will last approximately two months, workers will perform inspections and routine maintenance on a host of systems and components. Many of these activities cannot be performed while the 800 megawatt unit is running and all are intended to ensure the safe and reliable production of electricity.

Units 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 remain at high power.
