  1. NB Power increases power of refurbished nuclear unit

    New Brunswick Power (NB Power) received permission from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission to increase nuclear reactor power at the Point Lepreau Generating Station to 35 percent of full power. The approval is the last regulatory milestone before NB Power makes the refurbished plant available for commercial operations. Final commissioning steps include tests that involve raising and lowering reactor power, and connecting and disconnecting the generator from the grid. “This important approval means that NB Power has successfully completed all regulatory requirements needed to proceed to full power,” said Paul Pasquet, site vice president of NB Power Nuclear and chief nuclear officer. “Since last week’s successful synchronization to the New Brunswick grid , the Point Lepreau team has continued to work through the remaining commissioning steps to return this valuable asset to full operation.” CNSC will continue to monitor the remaining commissioning activities as well as station operations.
