Ontario Power Generation (OPG) can proceed with the refurbishment of Darlington unit 3 after receiving the go-ahead from the province’s Ministry of Energy. Refurbishment of Darlington unit 2 has now passed the half-way mark. Darlington 3 will be the second of the plant’s Candu units to undergo refurbishment in a project that will enable the 3512 MWe plant to continue operations until 2055. All four units are to be refurbished in a phased CAD 12.8 billion ($9 billion) project which is scheduled for completion by 2026.
