The first CANDU 6 plants went into service in the early 1980s as leading-edge technology, and the design has continuously evolved since to maintain superior technology and performance. The CANDU 6 power reactor offers a combination of proven and superior. CANDU exports depend on an Ontario sale; exports = jobs. CANDU 6 is AECL's 700 MWe class nuclear power reactor. The equivalent employment impact of an auto plant.



In South Korea—which has significant operating experience running both CANDU power plants and foreign competitors' technologies—CANDU 6 power plants have matched or exceeded other competitors' performance. Nuclear power is the most extensively regulated form of energy, required to meet very stringent safety and environmental requirements for all aspects, from mining to used fuel management.



Deep River Academy From time to time OCI comes across programs that benefit the industry and that our member companies may be interested in supporting. The students do not work in a classroom – they work in world-class professional laboratories with leading edge equipment. The DRSA awards students with 2 academic cooperative high school credits upon completion of the program.
