Supporting one of the largest and most challenging nuclear engineering projects in Canada
|Scope:||Project management, engineering and consultancy services|
|Date:||October 2005 – ongoing|
The Bruce A Restart Project is one of the largest and most challenging nuclear engineering projects to take place in North America. The plant, which has been shut down since 1998, received only limited maintenance and is currently undergoing major refurbishment to two nuclear units.
A lot of what we’re doing here is first-of-a-kind work. Before we started this project, there had not been a single steam generator lifted out of a CANDU unit anywhere in the world."
President and Chief Executive Officer
From our network of national resources, we were able to assign a team of over 500 staff, experienced in nuclear safety, engineering, and project management of large complex projects.
Our services include the provision of program, engineering and construction management on this multi-year project.
This multi-faceted, multi-billion dollar refurbishment is the largest CANDU nuclear refurbishment project ever undertaken and includes the replacement of the reactor fuel channels, steam generators and other major equipment. Both units undergoing refurbishment are expected to be online in 2012.
AMEC’s role has evolved since the start of the project and during this time AMEC staff have worked in excess of ten million hours without a lost time injury, achieved 100 per cent of our environmental goals, and received numerous training and safety accolades.
