A highly advanced reactor inspection delivery tool system, only the second of its kind, is nearing completion at the BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. plant in Peterborough.

The system is scheduled to be shipped to Bruce Power, in Kincardine on Lake Huron, on Feb. 24, which is on time, according to a release from BWXT.

BRIMS II will make its debut during Bruce Power’s scheduled maintenance and inspection program on Unit 3 later this year.

“The completion of this project is the result of a lot of hard work and dedication from our employees who not only worked to meet the schedule, but did so safely,” stated Mark Ward, president, BWXT NEC. “We are proud to build BRIMS II in Peterborough and are excited about continuing to work with Bruce Power throughout the life extension program and beyond.”

The BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada plant was formerly known as GE Hitachi Nuclear Canada until it was sold last year to BWXT, which is the former Babcock & Wilcox.

“This system will improve worker safety and save time, ensuring we continue to provide a source of low-cost power to Ontario families and businesses,” stated Len Clewett, executive vice-president and chief nuclear officer, Bruce Power.
