Strategy:

Differentiator = OCNI Membership

Tactics:

• Organize workshops for suppliers to present solutions to utilities

• Link Tier 1 members with Tier 2/3 members

Outcomes:

Strong linkage between Canadian utility customers and OCNI companies

OCNI helps member companies engage with utility customers as well as the national nuclear laboratory & CANDU design authority

OCNI organized supplier events over the year at Bruce Power, Chalk River and for the first-time separate events at the Pickering Site and at the Darlington Energy Complex. While weather gave us challenges at the Pickering and Darlington shows – our members persevered and spoke with a steady stream of operations, maintenance, engineering and procurement staff from Pickering, Darlington Site, and Darlington Refurbishment project.

The Pickering, Darlington trade shows were preceded by workshops on innovative technologies that OPG is seeking to deploy to improve maintenance practices and reduce costs.  The Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Workshop gave an outline of CNL’s major projects and provided a roadmap on how suppliers should work with the Procurement Department.

OCNI formed a Customer Engagement Committee this year to assist SME’s in understanding better understanding the process and qualifications required to get on utility Approved Vendors List. The Committee also has a mandate to create venues through which SME’s can present their new technology innovations to utility staff.

Our Golf tournament, one week before Canada’s 150 Birthday, enabled more casual supplier-customer networking on the links. We also fittingly celebrated the epic 1972 Canada-Russia hockey series with legend Paul Henderson of Team Canada.  

Our Christmas Lunch reminds us that business and friendship go hand in hand. OCNI made a donation to help those less fortunate through the Salvation Army.
