Candu Energy, part of Canada’s SNC-Lavalin Group, has been selected by Romanian nuclear utility Nuclearelectrica SA (SNN), operator of the Cernavoda NPP, to conduct design and engineering services for the unit 1 Candu reactor at the facility, as the first step to a future life extension project. As part of the 2.5-year contract, worth roughly CAD64 million ($49.5m), SNC-Lavalin will provide engineering and early procurement services for retubing work to replace key components of the reactor core: fuel channels, pressure tubes and feeders. This would see the reactor’s operating life extended to 2060. Cernavoda 1 supplies 10% of Romania’s electricity.

Canada-supplied plant could now operate until 2060 The Canada-supplied Candu 6 plant could now operate until 2060. Clourtesy Nuclearelectrica. Romanian power producer Cernavodă has signed a CAD64m (€48m, USD49m) contract with Canada’s Candu Energy for work on the refurbishment of Unit 1 at Romania’s Cernavodă nuclear power station.

Candu Energy, an SNC-Lavalin Group company, said the 2.5-year contract is to provide engineering and early procurement services for retubing work to replace key components of the reactor core including fuel channels, pressure tubes and feeders. The work will help extend the reactor’s operating life to 2060.

Cernavodă-1 is a 650-MW Candu 6 unit. Candu Energy is the original equipment manufacturer for the Candu reactor technology. The plant supplies 10% of Romania’s electricity, SNC-Lavalin said.

Candu units are pressurised heavy water reactors designed to operate for 30 years, with a further 30 years available subject to refurbishment. Cernavodă-1 began commercial operation in December 1996.
