As OPG and its project partners work toward restarting the Unit 2 reactor at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station, preparations have also been underway for the start of Unit 3’s refurbishment, which has been rescheduled for this fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The successful completion of the Darlington Refurbishment project remains one of OPG’s top priorities,” said Jeff Richardson, Senior Vice President of Nuclear Projects. “Like many organizations around the world, we’re adjusting to these unprecedented, changing conditions and are taking the necessary actions to keep employees safe and ensure the reliable production of electricity.”

One of those actions was the decision to postpone Unit 3 refurbishment and keep the reactor in operation until the revised start date, which allows OPG to accommodate public health guidelines on site and help provide essential electricity for the province at a time when it’s needed more than ever.
