Nucleom to support Bruce Power’s major component replacement and opens new office in Kincardine
Nucleom will support Bruce Power’s Major Component Replacement Project with non-destructive examination of critical components of the Unit 6 reactor as part of the Feeder Installation execution phase of the project.
“We’ve now reached the heart of the Unit 6 project where we’ll begin to reassemble the internal components of the reactor,” says Jeff Phelps, Vice President, Major Projects at Bruce Power. “Innovation has been a key driver for the project and partners like Nucleom are pivotal to our continued success. We thank Nucleom for their support of MCR and look forward to working together on this next phase of the project.”
Nucleom actively participates in research and development to establish novel technologies in the nuclear industry. With respect to MCR, inventive solutions have advanced the Radiography method to provide a safer working environment for workers, while increasing productivity of the project.
“We are excited with this opportunity to bring our ideas to fruition and support one of the largest infrastructure projects in Canada. Bruce Power has clearly expressed that they are looking to drive change and innovation for the benefit of the Major Component Replacement Project, and we are proud to be part of the Team”, said Olivier Marcotte, CEO and Founder, Nucleom.
Nucleom’s newly established office in Kincardine, Ontario will become the base of operations for 40+ full-time technicians and administrative employees dedicated to the MCR project. “Bruce Power has been a major contributor to our growth, and it is important for us to actively participate in the Bruce County economy and community initiatives”, added Olivier Marcotte.
Nucleom’s decision to establish a regional presence highlights the significant benefits of supply chain localization – a key part of the Nuclear Innovation Institute’s Clean Energy Frontier program.
As Canada’s Clean Energy Frontier, the tri-county region of Bruce, Grey and Huron is demonstrating the critical role the region plays in achieving a net zero future. Already, the region is home to more than 60 companies, like Nucleom, operating in the clean energy industry. Their presence in the region is providing significant benefits to the local economy, the clean energy sector, and the environment through the important work like the MCR project.
