First phase of McMaster-Kinectrics collaboration focuses on surveillance monitoring

Two men work in laboratory

Work uses state-of-the-art engineering equipment and is critical to the life cycle management of Ontario’s nuclear reactors.

MARCH 15, 2021 – McMaster University, and nuclear supplier, Kinectrics, completed the first phase of a “first-of-its-kind” partnership focused on surveillance monitoring of components from Ontario Power Generation’s Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. 

The outcome of their work ensures that equipment used during maintenance will perform to the industry’s exacting standards and provides the requisite data for decision-making on infrastructure renewal.  

The work is being conducted at McMaster’s Centre for Advanced Nuclear Systems (CANS) – a unique regional research facility dedicated to the study of nuclear systems; created under the leadership of John Luxat, professor of engineering physics and NSERC/UNENE Senior Industrial Research Chair.
