Permanent Start-Up Instrumentation (PSUI) for Vertical Flux Detectors
Bruce Power engaged Promation Nuclear to design and build the first-of-a-kind CANDU reactor permanent start-up instrumentation (PSUI) that would be used to replace the traditional temporary start-up instrumentation used to date.
Spent Fuel Bay Water Swap System
A research facility in Ontario that stores used nuclear fuel rods by shielding them with water experienced contamination inside the storage pools of tritiated heavy water.
Whiteshell Laboratories Standpipe Remediation
To safely decommission and remediate its Whiteshell site, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) needs remote-operated, bespoke robotics and automation equipment. Promation Nuclear was tasked with the design, fabrication, inspection and testing of two separate nuclear-grade ventilation systems and the standpipe waste retrieval system (SWRS).
Hot Test Rig – Closure Plug Testing System
Tier one Nuclear customer approached Promation for the design, TSSA registration, procurement, manufacturing, assembly and commissioning of a hot test rig for performing functional tests of fuel channel closure assemblies used on CANDU nuclear reactors.
Energy-Absorbing Mitigation Crash Pad
A Tier one supplier to the nuclear industry engaged Promation for the design, engineering, manufacturing, examination and testing of an energy-absorbing crash pad.
Radiation Source (Hot Spot) Removal
One of Ontario’s primary energy utilities had a remote radioactive hot spot that needed to be retrieved, shielded, and disposed of.
Steel-Shielded Storage Containers
A Tier one supplier to the nuclear industry engaged Promation for the design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, inspection and test of a shielded storage container for the storage, contamination control, radiation shielding and transportation of its contents from the Retube Waste Processing Building (RWPB) at Darlington Nuclear site to a waste storage facility.
