AECL provides update on NRU Planned Outage Activities for the upcoming one month shutdown: http://www.aecl.ca/NewsRoom/Community_Bulletins/2013/130312.htm
"AECL reports that the National Research Universal (NRU) reactor will
enter a planned outage beginning on April 14, 2013 and ending May 14,
2013. The purpose of the outage is to conduct scheduled inspection and
maintenance. This marks the third annual outage for the NRU.
Inspection results to date continue to confirm that the NRU vessel
remains fit for service. In addition to the annual vessel
inspection, work is planned during the outage to enhance the reliability
and safety of NRU. A dedicated work management outage team has been
established to coordinate the activities of suppliers, NRU specialists
and supporting departments ensuring the safe and successful execution of
the outage. Facility users and the isotope community have been
informed well in advance of this outage and have taken steps to adjust
their activities. The ongoing operations of the NRU allow AECL to
continue to produce medical isotopes and provide vital research support
to scientists and universities from across Canada and around the world."
