The Point LePreau Generating Station was the first of the world's fleet of CANDU 6 reactors (635 MW) to undergo a refurbishment. The main activities included the replacement of all 380 fuel channels, calandria tubes and feeder pipes as well as other station maintenance work. Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) was the General Contractor and the original designer of the station. LMC was the main subcontractor to AECL and as such performed the removal and replacement of the fuel channels; Caandria tubes and all 760 feeder tubes of the heavy water heat transport system. The project was manned around the clock, seven days a week. LMC provided installation and shop frabrication services as well as supervision and purchasing services to AECL. The refurbishment outage was the first refurbishment of a CANDU 6 reactor in the world and extended the life of the station for an additional 25 to 30 years.
