Lepreau Refurbishment On Track

Good news from Point Lepreau-- Refurbishment Director Rod Eagles says he's pleased with AECL's quick transition from putting in calandria tubes to installing fuel channels. 

Now that the calandria tubes are in, the reactor needs 380 fuel channels to be installed. 

An update says six per cent of the work is done and things are on track to have all of the retubing completed by May of 2012. 

The nuclear power plant is scheduled to come back online in the fall of that year.
