Licence Renewal

On Nov. 12, 2018, BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada (BWXT NEC) submitted an application to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to renew its Class 1B Nuclear Fuel Facility Operating Licence (FFOL) for a period of 10 years. The current licence, issued on January 1, 2011, is valid until December 31, 2020. 

The current operating licence issued by the CNSC authorizes BWXT NEC to perform activities at two facilities: The Toronto facility located at 1025 Lansdowne Ave. and the Peterborough facility at 1160 Monaghan Rd. The Toronto facility is authorized to produce natural and depleted uranium dioxide pellets (referred to as pelleting), while the Peterborough facility is authorized to produce and test fuel bundles using natural and depleted uranium dioxide pellets. The Peterborough facility is additionally authorized to receive, repair, modify and return contaminated equipment from off-site nuclear facilities.   

BWXT NEC is seeking one change to its licence with regard to pellet manufacturing operations. BWXT NEC is seeking  the flexibility during the proposed next 10-year licence period to permit BWXT NEC to produce natural uranium pellets at both the Peterborough and Toronto facilities.  

While there is currently no plan to change the existing state of operations, including the flexibility to allow BWXT NEC’s Peterborough facility to conduct pelleting will help to ensure that BWXT NEC has the ability to adapt as needed to changing business needs over the decade-long licence period. 

If you have any questions about licensing or BWXT NEC’s operations, please call us at 1.855.696.9588 or email us at questions@bwxt.com.
