Bruce Power Unit 6 MCR complete on-time and on-budget

With the monumental construction phase of the Major Component Replacement portion of its Unit 6 refurbishment now substantially complete, Bruce Power is turning its attention to the process of returning the unit to service.

Unit 6, which provides enough electricity to power a city the size of Hamilton, is on track to resume providing clean, reliable energy to Ontario homes and businesses later this year, and for decades to come.

The company reached a major milestone recently with the substantial completion of the construction phase of its Unit 6 MCR Project on-time and on-budget and has shifted focus to returning the unit to service later this year as Bruce Power progresses Ontario’s largest clean-energy infrastructure project.

Bruce Power Operations staff will now begin refueling the unit with 5,760 fuel bundles in May, while other lead-out activities and regulatory inspections will be completed to return it to Ontario’s electricity grid in Q4 of this year.

Unit 6 was the first of six units Bruce Power and its partners will refurbish between 2020 and 2033, a privately funded investment into Units 3-8 that will extend the life of the site through 2064.
