TIVERTON, ON, June 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Bruce Power is hosting a supplier information day on July 27 at the Bruce Power site in Tiverton, ON.
This session is open to both current and prospective suppliers and will provide an opportunity for suppliers to hear from our Acting President, Chief Nuclear Officer and the Vice Presidents of Outage and Maintenance Services, Major Projects, Project Management and Construction, Facilities, Commercial Services and Supply Chain, among others.
Topics of discussion will include Bruce Power's Corporate Priorities and the role the company requires of our Suppliers to ensure successful delivery of our operational plan. The intent of this session is to outline in detail the commercial support required and the opportunities for our suppliers for the coming three year period associated with the following programs of work: Bruce Power outages and projects, site facilities and infrastructure upgrades, the Major Component Replacement project and Asset Management.
On Dec. 3, 2015, Bruce Power and the Independent Electricity System Operator entered into an amended, long-term agreement to secure 6,300 megawatts of electricity from the Bruce Power site, through a multi-year investment program. The amended agreement will enable the company to progress with a series of incremental life-extension investments, including refurbishment, to secure a clean, reliable and affordable source of electricity for Ontario families and businesses for decades to come, as outlined in Ontario's 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan.
The amended agreement will allow Bruce Power to immediately invest in life-extension activities for Units 3-8 to support a long-term refurbishment program that will commence on Unit 6 in 2020, optimizing the operational life of the site and offering significant ratepayer and system benefits.
The program will secure an estimated 18,000 jobs directly and indirectly from operations, and an additional 3,000-5,000 jobs annually throughout the investment program, injecting billions into Ontario's economy as outlined in an Economic Impact Study, released in 2013.
