Nuclear refurbishment begins at Darlington station in Ontario
The first nuclear unit at the Darlington Generating Station will be taken offline so that Ontario Power Generation (OPG) can begin work to remove, replace and repair the critical components in each reactor.
The refurbishment of the four Darlington nuclear units will span 10 years and will secure 3,500 megawatts of affordable, reliable and emissions-free power.
Refurbishment and continued operation of Darlington up to 2055 will contribute a total of $90 billion to Ontario’s GDP and increase employment by an average of 14,200 jobs annually, including over 2,600 jobs onsite at Darlington. ■
