Ontario Power Generation won a maintenance contract for Darlington nuclear plant

Ontario Power Generation has begun a $122 million planned maintenance and inspection outage on Darlington Nuclear Unit 4. The 900 megawatt unit
was removed from service April 8 after more than 159 consecutive days of producing reliable and clean baseload electricity. In January, OPG announced a $12.8 billion investment of Darlington Nuclear Station. The refurbishment of the first of four units will begin in October and will preserve about 3,000
jobs. The refurbished station will provide 30-plus years of clean, reliable baseload power at a cost lower than other alternatives considered. In 2015, OPG’s average sale price for nuclear generation was 6.5 cents per kilowatt hour.
