MONTREAL — Alithya Group inc., a supplier to the nuclear industry, has partnered with the Canadian Nuclear Isotope Council (CNIC) to support the Canadian isotope sector with its artificial intelligence, automation, and digital systems expertise.

“The strategic partnership is aimed at helping members of the CNIC and the broader Canadian isotope sector to increase the efficiency, ease, and safety of the isotope production, packaging and delivery processes to ensure Canada remains a global leader in this field,” said Nigel Fonseca, Senior Vice President, Ontario & Western Canada at Alithya. “This commitment makes Alithya a great long-term delivery partner with Canada’s isotope sector to push new boundaries with the research and development of new applications of isotopes for cancer treatments.”

Alithya has been working on projects within the Canadian nuclear isotope sector, providing engineering, design, testing, and simulation services for projects with many isotope companies. This work has included:

  • Engineering the pneumatic control system for the isotope delivery system at Bruce Power
  • Partnering with Isogen on the preliminary and detailed engineering phases for new isotope delivery systems
  • Designing simulation platforms for the verification and validation of various isotope delivery systems, and
  • Conducting reviews and providing oversight for vendor isotope production system designs to ensure compliance with Canadian nuclear software engineering standards.

“The CNIC was forged to create these types of interconnections between the broader manufacturing/advanced automation sector and Canadian isotope sector. By creating these partnerships, we are further enabling innovation within the Canadian isotope ecosystem and helping to ensure that Canada and the rest of the world have a reliable and stable supply of critical cancer-fighting isotopes,” said James Scongack, Chair of the Canadian Nuclear Isotope Council. “I would like to welcome Alithya as a new partner and look forward to working with them as part of this strong coalition.”
