In 2017, SGRT signed a long-term Preferred Supplier Agreement for steam generator replacements as part of the Bruce Major Component Replacement (MCR) Project. SGRT is currently contracted for Units 3, 4 and 6, with three units (5, 7 and 8) remaining. The Bruce MCR Project is creating jobs, generating economic development opportunities in local and surrounding communities, and will be integral in advancing Ontario’s economic recovery coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is critical in supplying clean, reliable and low-cost energy to Ontarians, and to ensuring Canada meets its commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
