The restart process and reconnection to the grid are subject to regulatory approvals from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission and “OPG’s ability to do so safely given the current Covid-19 crisis,” a statement said.

The company said it will delay the planned start of the refurbishment of Darlington-3, scheduled to begin in May, as part of its measures to ensure stable electricity supplies during the pandemic.

“In the coming weeks, the Darlington-3 project team will determine the best time to restart the project, ensuring the required critical resources and materials are available,” the statement said.
