Bruce Power

Bruce A & Bruce B Nuclear Generating Stations

Show map

Bruce Power is Ontario's largest independent generator of electricity.

Bruce Power is a partnership among Cameco Corporation, TransCanada PipeLines, BPC Generation Infrastructure Trust, and the two main unions on the Bruce site, the Power Workers' Union and The Society of Energy Professionals.

Bruce Power has entered into a lease agreement with Ontario Power Generation in 2001 to operate the Bruce A and B nuclear generating stations. The lease is for a period of 18 years, with an option to renew up to a further 25 years.

The four nuclear reactors on Bruce B are capable of producing enough electricity for a city the size of Toronto. Bruce A units were laid up in the period of 1996-98. A program to restart two of the four units (Units 3 and 4) began in 2001. Both units are now back in service. Bruce 4 was synchronized to the grid in October 2003 and declared in-service on November 28, 2003. Bruce 3 was synchronized to the grid on January 8, 2004 and declared in-service March 28, 2004.

Agreement to refurbish Bruce A Units 1 and 2 was finalized in October 2005 and it expected to take 5 years.
