Comstock wins contracts for Bruce A refurb

25 March 2009

Comstock Canada, a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, has received contracts from Bruce Power to support the major refurbishment of Bruce A in Ontario.

The company will provide mechanical and electrical construction services supporting the refurbishment of the facility's four 900MW-class Candu reactors. The scope of work involves low-pressure service water and high-pressure recirculation water pipe replacement and flushing, in addition to the filed execution of the valve replacement program.

Bruce Power’s 2300-acre site in Tiverton is home to Bruce A and B generating stations, each with four reactors. Six of the units are operational and together produce some 4700MWe, which equates to 20% Ontario’s energy needs.

Comstock has an existing relationship with Bruce Power. The company carried out the replacement of steam generators in units 1 and 2, and has since continued with activities in support of that facility.

Geoff Birkbeck, chief executive officer of Comstock Canada said: "We are extremely pleased to be further expanding our relationship with Bruce Power and working on yet another highly technical project so important to Canada's future."
