Bruce Power is contributing to a ‘Made in Ontario’ economic recovery, awarding a contract valued at approximately USD 40M to BWXT Canada Ltd., located in Cambridge, Ontario. The contract involves the engineering and fabrication of four moderator heat exchangers, which are used to remove heat from the moderator system of CANDU® nuclear reactors.
This contract aligns with the company’s plan to contribute to a revitalized economy in Ontario. The plan includes a private investment of USD 3bn over 18 months through the company’s Life-Extension Program, isotope development, and asset optimization strategy.
The contract with BWXT to supply heat exchangers is part of Bruce Power’s long-term investment in its site and supports a significant number of high-skilled jobs for Ontarians.
Engineering work associated with the contract has commenced, with fabrication expected to start later this year. The first two moderator heat exchangers will be delivered in 2024, with the remaining two units scheduled for delivery in 2025.
