Since 2007, SNC-Lavalin has been successfully refurbishing units in the global CANDU® reactor fleet to extend their useful life. The company has developed and deployed the highly automated remote tooling systems used to remove, volume reduce, and transport the highly radioactive reactor core components.  Work also include the design and construction of on-site facilities to safely store the removed reactor core components. When completed, the life of the CANDU reactor is doubled. To date, four units have been refurbished in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Korea. Two projects are currently being executed by SNC Lavalin to refurbish four reactor units in Ontario and one reactor unit in Argentina. SNC-Lavalin was also awarded a further project commitment to refurbish an additional six reactors in Ontario over the next twelve years.
