SNC-Lavalin awarded Bruce Power pump seal contract

MONTREAL — SNC-Lavalin has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Candu Energy Inc. has been awarded a $6.9-million multi-year contract to work on Bruce Power’s primary heat transport (PHT) system’s pump seal maintenance program in Ontario through 2023.

SNC-Lavalin has been the sole supplier of CAN8 pump seals for Bruce Power since 2011, noted a Sept. 9 release. The firm is working with Canadian Nuclear Laboratories on the project.

The CAN-series pump seals have been installed at all eight units at Bruce Power. Developed through SNC-Lavalin research and development, the pump seals use specialty materials and high-temperature-resistant elastomers to expand upon the original seal manufacturers’ performance specifications, explained the statement.

“This strategic contract enables SNC-Lavalin to engage local supply chain partners that are Ontario’s nuclear advantage and support the local economic recovery,” said Sandy Taylor, president of nuclear at SNC-Lavalin, in a statement. “Our pump seals are installed in BWR/PWR nuclear stations around the world and we are proud that our pump seals will continue to support the CANDU reactors and longstanding relationship with Bruce Power.”
