NB Power attends public hearing for nuke license renewal

NB Power, which is owned by the Canadian government, participated in the first part of a public hearing set for renewal of power reactor operating license for the 660-MW Point Lepreau nuclear power plant.

The two-part hearing involves presentation on information submitted to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. NB Power gave a presentation on Jan. 26, said the press statement.

NB Power applied for a five-year license in June 2016. The current license expires in June this year.

The license renewal process comes at a time when New Brunswick select committee on climate change has suggested complete phase out of approximately 1,964-MW of fossil-fuel generation capacity by 2030. Point Lepreau's emission-free clean energy fits the bill.

The second part of the hearing is scheduled for May 10-11.
