DARLINGTON NUCLEAR GENERATING STATION – ONTARIO POWER GENERATION (OPG)
This facility is located on Lake Ontario approximately a one hour’s drive east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The plant consists of four 900 megawatt CANDU reactors. When all four units are operating, the station produces almost 20 per cent of the electricity consumed by Ontario residents’ and industries.
The four units are scheduled to undergo a major refurbishment which will extend their operating life for a further 25 years.
This site has conducted an environmental assessment which has been approved for a new build power plant. To date no decision has been made on a start date for the new facility.
