B&W wins nuclear reactor maintenance contract for Bruce Power

Charlotte, N.C., August 4, 2011 — The Babcock & Wilcox Co. unit Babcock & Wilcox Canada Ltd. won a contract worth about $40 million from Bruce Power to perform fuel channel maintenance on its Unit 3 nuclear reactor during a scheduled plant shutdown in November 2011.

Bruce Power, located near Kincardine, Ontario, Canada, is the largest nuclear facility in North America, and second largest in the world, comprised of eight CANDU nuclear reactors with a total output capability of 7,276 MW.

This will be the third fuel channel maintenance project performed for Bruce Power. In previous projects, 200 channels on the Unit 3 reactor were moved. Under this contract, nearly all of the 480 channels will be shifted in order to bring the reactor back to service after the outage.
