 Bruce Power, KHNP team on nuclear safety and operations

Bruce Power and Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power (KHNP) will collaborate on enhancing nuclear safety and the operational performance and execution of large nuclear projects.
 
The two groups currently share best practices and information through their operation of CANDU reactors. Both are working on completing a Technical Assistance Agreement by the end of 2015 that will provide a long-term framework for sharing in key areas of CANDU operations and refurbishments. The agreement includes sharing lessons learned, information and future strategies having to do with the operation and refurbishment of CANDU units, and sharing approaches and strategies to communicate with the public on the operations of CANDU reactors.
 
“KHNP and Bruce Power have experience with the refurbishment of CANDU nuclear reactors and a range of life extension and investment activities that will continue for many years to come as these CANDU units play an important role in meeting the electricity needs in both jurisdictions,” said Seung-Chul Lee, vice president, Technology Policy and Strategy Department with KHNP.
