TORONTO — The Millwright Regional Council of Ontario congratulates Ontario Power Generation (OPG) on advancing their clean energy project and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy for being selected as the Small Modular Reactor technology partner.
The Darlington New Nuclear Project is the only site in Canada currently licensed for a new nuclear build with an approved Environmental Assessment and regulatory licence.
“UBC Millwrights is leading the way in developing virtual safety, installation and maintenance training programs that directly support OPG and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy success with this clean energy generation project,” said Mark Beardsworth, Director of Operations with the Millwright Regional Council of Ontario.
UBC Millwrights say they look forward to working together with OPG and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy to develop enhanced skills training programs to safely deploy and maintain a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) at the Darlington new nuclear site, projected to be completed as early as 2028.
UBC Millwrights are reportedly committed to the success of this project and support OPG and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy as they collaborate on the SMR engineering, design, planning, licensing preparation, permitting materials, and performing site preparation activities.
