Joint Review Panel for the proposed Bruce Power New Nuclear Power Plant Project
Technical Information Session on Nuclear Power Plant Technologies
The Joint Review Panel for the proposed Bruce Power New Nuclear Power Plant Project invites the public to attend a technical information session regarding three proposed nuclear power plant technologies.
The objective of the half-day session is to provide information on these technologies in order to allow the panel to acquire an understanding of the principal features of the designs and their layouts, the key plant operational parameters, the overall normal operation, the approaches to the control and mitigation of potential accidents, and the key similarities and differences.

The information session will be webcasted live via the CNSC Web site and will be archived on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry under reference number 07-05-25738.
The Bruce Power New Nuclear Power Plant Project is a proposal for the site preparation, and the construction, operation, decommissioning and abandonment of up to four new nuclear reactors at the existing Bruce Nuclear Site, located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, north of Kincardine. The project is expected to generate approximately 4000 megawatts of electricity to the Ontario grid.
This technical information session is being held during the comment period on the project’s Environmental Impact Statement and Application for a Licence to Prepare a Site.
