People may soon be able to look to the stars and take pride knowing that Canada played a key role in future space exploration. Recently, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and its venture arm, Canadian Nuclear Partners, announced their participation in a project to produce isotopes in support of deep space exploration; a project that relies on CNL to play an important role.
Last week was a big week for CNL and for nuclear in this country. Over the five-day span, the entire industry came together in Ottawa at the Canadian Nuclear Association’s (CNA) Annual Conference and Trade Show to talk about nuclear: its current state, its future outlook, challenges, and begin conversations about how to move forward. While the CNA provides the opportunity, a great deal of work is done on the margins of the event, including discussions with host communities, bilateral meetings with government officials, commercial business and a substantial push on communications both within the industry but also to the general public and stakeholders.
Canada has a proud history in innovative nuclear technologies. Canada’s domestic power reactor design has been successfully deployed around the globe, providing the clean, reliable, low-carbon electricity the world needs.
Please welcome Dr. Kathryn A. McCarthy to the CNL team, taking leadership of the Research & Development organization. Kathy joins CNL bringing decades of experience gained through a career dedicated to nuclear science and technology.
