Remarkable achievement!: Refurbished Bruce approaching full strength: http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/C-Refurbished_Bruce_approaching_full_strength-1810127.html
"The second unit at the refurbished Bruce A nuclear power plant has
sent electricity to the Canadian grid for the first time in 17 years,
five months after its restart was postponed because of generator
problems. The grid synchronisation of Bruce A2 signals the final
stages of commissioning the 750 MWe Candu after seven years of
refurbishment. This saw the replacement of all its pressure tubes and
calandria tubes, electrical system upgrades, and the first ever
replacement of a steam generator at a Canadian nuclear plant. The unit
was ready to restart in May, but a problem with the electrical generator
in the non-nuclear side of the plant resulted in a last-minute
postponement. Bruce A1 went through a similar refurbishment and became
the first of the pair to restart, synchronising with the grid in
September. Bruce Power president and CEO Duncan Hawthorne expressed
his satisfaction that the project was moving into its final stages.
"This gets us one step closer to the finish line and for the first time
in nearly two decades we're in the midst of returning the site to its
full operational capacity," he said."
