ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, Toronto, Ontario, which was regarded by experts as the leading nuclear capacity factors of Canada. It is stated that the Bruce A and Bruce B of the nuclear plant has four Canada deuterium uranium reactors (CANDU). While Bruce A reactors started commercial service during 1977 to 1979, Bruce B started between 1984 to 1987. The reactor is owned by Bruce Power LP.
