Bruce Power Fuel Channel and Feeder Replacement

Kincardine, Ontario

The project is the centrepiece of the Major Component Replacement (MCR) program which will see the replacement of the main components of the reactor. Unit 6 is the first of six reactors being replaced by Bruce Power through the MCR program. This joint venture team (Aecon, SNC-Lavalin and AECOM) – operating under the banner Shoreline Power Group – will focus on the removal and replacement of calandria tubes, 480 pressure tubes, and 960 feeder tubes – the type of nuclear work that Aecon has specialized in for the better part of a decade. The rest of the scope of work includes construction management and trade labour.

Similar to the Unit 6 Steam Generator Replacement Project, this project consortium has also signed a Preferred Supplier Agreement with Bruce Power. The agreement outlines the opportunity for the project consortium to be awarded similar contracts for the remaining five units scheduled to be refurbished over the next 16 years under the MCR program.
