TransCanada Turbines bags USD 6M contract

21 December 2017

Bruce Power and TransCanada Turbines have entered into an agreement valued at more than USD 5.9M in support of major component overhauls for the standby generators.

Over the next five years, Bruce Power will be investing in the asset management work to improve the Avon engines, power turbines, main reduction gearboxes and electrical generators. The standby generators are a backup power supply in the event of a loss of power.

The operation of the Bruce site through 2064 will create USD 4B in annual Ontario economic benefit through the direct and indirect spending on operational equipment, supplies, materials and labour income.

The eight Bruce Power CANDU units produce 30 percent of Ontario’s electricity at 30 percent less than the average cost to generate residential power.
