NB Power participating in public hearing for Point Lepreau licence renewal

2017-01-26


Fredericton, N.B. – NB Power is participating in the first part of a public hearing to renew the Power Reactor Operating Licence (PROL) for the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station (PLNGS).

In June 2016, NB Power applied for a five-year PROL issued by an independent federal nuclear regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). The current PROL expires in June 2017.

Part 1 of the hearing is taking place today, January 26, in Ottawa, ON. The hearing will involve presentations from NB Power and CNSC staff to the CNSC Commission. Commission Members will question both parties about the information that was submitted and presented. The hearing will be streamed on the CNSC website starting at 10:00 Atlantic Standard Time.

"The public hearing process gives our team an opportunity to demonstrate to the public and the CNSC that we continue to operate Point Lepreau safely, meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, to protect the public, our staff, and the environment,” said Brett Plummer, Site Vice President. “A renewed licence will permit NB Power to continue generating reliable, emission-free nuclear power for our customers.”

Part 2 of the hearing will occur May 10-11, 2017, in Saint John, NB. The Commission Members will continue the hearing process with participation from NB Power and CNSC staff. During Part 2, registered intervenors will have an opportunity to make presentations to the CNSC Commission.

The public, Aboriginal groups and other stakeholders are encouraged to get involved in the regulatory process and are able to register with the CNSC to participate as intervenors until March 27, 2017. Click here to learn more.

To learn more about the regulatory process, interested parties can register to participate in the upcoming CNSC 101 Sessions in Saint John on February 2, 2017. Click here for more information.
