One project in one sector and the economic impact 

“The nuclear sector has been identified as a significant opportunity for the Peterborough area, with over 20 local companies making up a nuclear cluster,” said Stuart Harrison, President & CEO, Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce. “The Darlington Nuclear refurbishment offers the opportunity for local businesses to be a part of the supply chain that will see the project through to completion.”

Recently, the Peterborough and Ontario Chambers of Commerce hosted the Hon. Jeff Leal, MPP of Peterborough, Ontario Power Generation, and local vendors in the nuclear industry including Rolls-Royce and Canadian Instrumentation Services Group Ltd. The goal of the roundtable was to discuss how the Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment project will impact the Peterborough and provincial economies.  

"Refurbishing Darlington is an investment in clean air, in lower energy prices, in jobs, and an important investment in Peterborough,” said Boris Vulanovic, Director Operations & Maintenance at OPG.  “OPG and our suppliers and partners are working as one team to deliver the project safely, on time and on budget." 

Discussion centred around the nuclear supply chain and skilled trades.
