As part of the milestone celebration, Bill Walker, Associate Energy Minister and Member of Provincial Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, along with representatives from Framatome, Bruce Power and Kinectrics, toured Framatome’s state-of-the-art engineering facility north of Kincardine, Ontario.
At the facility, Isogen is completing the final phase of engineering, testing and design for a mock-up of the isotope production system. Once testing and engineering are complete, the team will begin building these systems for use in Bruce Power’s reactors. Framatome’s facility will also serve as a training site for Bruce Power employees.
Isotope production is expected to begin in 2022, pending regulatory and other approvals.
