..."Ontario Power Generation has signed service agreements with two
companies to design a pair of reactors next to the Darlington nuclear
station. Energy Minister Chris Bentley said during a speech to about
250 people at a Durham Strategic Energy Alliance breakfast meeting in
Ajax Tuesday the agreements are a "very important step." OPG signed the agreements with Westinghouse and SNC-Lavalin/Candu Energy Inc. last week.
Each company will spend the next year developing detailed construction
plans, schedules and the cost for two reactors next to Darlington.
Ontario has been planning to build up to four reactors next to
Darlington. Several years ago, then provincial cabinet minister George
Smitherman shelved plans when four companies submitted bids the
government felt were too expensive. The government's long-term energy plan calls for the generation of 2,000 megawatts of new nuclear power.
The designs are for an enhanced Candu 6 reactor by Candu Energy, a unit
of SNC-Lavalin, and the AP 1000 reactor by Westinghouse."
