SNC Lavalin Group’s Candu Energy Inc has been awarded one year extensions from Bruce Power on two existing contracts: to continue to provide fuel channel inspection, and tooling maintenance and refurbishment in support of their reactor inspection and maintenance. As part of the extensions, SNC Lavalin will support Bruce Power in executing three fuel channel inspection outages as part of the station’s regular outage schedule in 2021. This contract is within SNCL Engineering Services, the cornerstone of our strategy moving forward to greater growth and support for our partners and customers.
As the steward of CANDU technology, SNC-Lavalin leads the fuel channel inspection programs for these heavy water reactors around the world performing multiple outages each year. The Bruce Power fuel channel inspections have been performed using the Bruce Reactor Inspection and Maintenance System - Advanced Non-Destructive Examination (BRIMS-ANDE System) for over five years.
