Toronto

Natural Uranium Fuel Fabrication

At BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada’s (BWXT NEC) Toronto facility, we make ceramic pellets from natural uranium powder. After pressing, baking, grinding to precision size and inspecting the pellets, we send them to our facility in Peterborough where they are placed into fuel bundles for CANDU® power stations in Ontario.

The pellets produced at our Toronto facility go on to provide about 25% of Ontario’s electricity.

The Toronto facility (along with our Peterborough operation) is licensed by Canada’s nuclear regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada (BWXT NEC) is committed to meeting all of its licence requirements.

More information on our environmental and safety performance can be found in our Annual Compliance Report which is available at nec.bwxt.com/safety.
