Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station reconnects to the New Brunswick grid


Fredericton, N.B. – Yesterday, the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station (PLNGS) reconnected to the New Brunswick grid following the completion of its planned maintenance outage 2022.

The work completed during the outage included more than 30,000 technical maintenance activities on equipment and systems, on both the nuclear and conventional parts of the Station. With help from approximately 1000 contractors and tradespeople, activities included routine maintenance, repairs, system modifications, inspections and testing that can only be conducted when the Station is offline.

Planned outages of this nature are key investments to ensure the long-term reliability of PLNGS to meet the energy needs of New Brunswickers.
