Shoreline Power Group will receive a $1.3 billion contract from Bruce Power for fuel channel and feeder replacement (FCFR) at Bruce Nuclear Generating Station Units 4, 5, 7 and 8 in Tiverton, Ontario.

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2025 with completion anticipated in 2032. Shoreline Power Group is a joint venture between United Engineers & Constructors, Aecon and SNC-Lavalin.

Shoreline Power Group and Bruce Power have also achieved “substantial completion” on Bruce Nuclear Unit 6 refurbishment, according to United Engineers & Constructors, remaining on track to return the unit to service in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Shoreline was previously awarded a fuel channel and feeder replacement contract for Bruce Unit 3.

The group is now under contracted to execute FCFR work on all six of Bruce Power’s units, which will extend the life of the site to 2064 through the Bruce Power Major Component Replacement (MCR) program.
