Bruce 2 nuclear fuel reload begins

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will allow Bruce Power to begin to reload fuel into Unit 2 and continue with refurbishment activities.

As the Bruce A Units 1 and 2 refurbishment project nears completion, the units are being returned to service through a process, which includes regulatory hold points. The CNSC's action follows Bruce Power's request for the release of the fuel reload hold point for Unit 2.

CNSC approval is still required to remove the shutdown guarantees and restart the reactor.

CNSC staff said it is satisfied that Bruce Power is qualified to reload fuel to Unit 2 and has made adequate provisions for the safety of the public, workers and the environment.
