Re: [cdn-nucl-l] OPG's press notes on the recovery from the blackout
It is interesting to contrast the effects on OPGs plants with those at Bruce. According to a press release from Bruce on Friday 15th " Within hours of the incident, three of the four units at the Bruce B generating station were reconnected to the provincial grid and are currently being dispatched at the direction of the Independent Electricity Market Operator (IMO).
Together, Units 5, 7 and 8 have 2,400 MW of electricity available when called upon by the IMO. As a result of the disruption, Unit 6 did shut down and will be returned to service as quickly as possible."
Has anyone got any information on why Bruce was able to reconnect their units to the grid much more quickly than the units at Pickering and Darlington?
