Candu Energy Inc., a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has been awarded $16 million worth of contracts from Bruce Power over the past few months.
The work was awarded under a Master Services Agreement signed in 2016 and is in addition to work announced previously.
The team is working with Bruce Power on a strategy to reduce the need for the Modal Detection And Repositioning (MODAR) tool by estimating the acceptable minimum gap in each channel. It is expected that this work will reduce the number of channels that require MODAR , leading to shorter outage times.
In October of last year, SNC-Lavalin joined Bruce Power’s Regional Supplier Network and opened an office in Port Elgin. The office continues to expand the number of engineering design projects it can offer to Bruce Power with strong local involvement. These projects include removing the main control room’s indicators and alarms for the unit operator display driver (UODD) system; and a project to replace obsolete temperature controllers in the secondary control area and emergency water and power supply (EWPS) for units 0,5,6,7 and 8.
