Valve research saves money and improves reliability: The results of a successful COG joint project on a fuel-handling valve (above) could be replicated, elsewhere. The same approach could be taken to address many spare part issues where original manufacturers are no longer in business or a single source is cost-prohibitive.
The CANDU Owners Group Board of Directors has a new chair and two new
members. They take stock of the industry today and the organization's role in
creating a nuclear future through lower cost and optimized performance in CANDU plants globally.
A new initiative improves safety and reliability in older steam generators.
The success of a joint project to re-engineer a fuel-handling system valve could be replicated to address other obsolescence issues.

Year 2 of the COG Obsolescence Workshop offered more opportunities for collaboration to address challenges and find solutions to an aging problem.
