Special Interest Station Updates
2016 - Q3
[Feb. 13, 2017]: On Friday, Feb. 10, it was determined that a motor sent off site for repair contained a small amount of tritiated water and surface contamination within the motor casing. OPG staff cleaned up the water, placed the motor in a safe state and returned it to Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. Subsequent surveys were normal. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission was notified.
There was no impact to employees, the public or the environment.
Units 3 and 4 are operating at full power. Unit 1 is in a maintenance outage. Unit 2 is undergoing refurbishment.
