Radiological Protection Training Centre opens in Canada

Nuvia recently held the grand opening of a new Radiological Protection Training Centre / Project Office. The new centre has been established, near Bruce Power, to support and provide radiation protection services to the Major Component Replacement (MCR) project at Bruce Power Station, Ontario, Canada.

On Tuesday, March 26th, Nuvia officially cut the ribbon to open the doors of the new centre, where we have already begun to train Radiation Protection Technicians, in response to Bruce Power’s MCR project. Nuvia is the latest, and one of many new companies, to set up a local office as part of the supply chain support to Bruce Power.

Attendees at the event included, the CEO of Bruce Power, Mike Rencheck, along with other Bruce Power executives as well as local politicians, local media, other local contractors and Nuvia staff.

Arkell Farr, Nuvia Canada CEO, said: The facility is going to become the training centre for all of the company’s Canadian radiation technicians. We are going to centralise training here in Tiverton and it will be a centre of excellence for the long term.

We have trained 50 to 60 technicians to date, said Franz Dambo, Nuvia’s Director of Radiological Protection Services

but our goal is to have 155 at Bruce Power. We need to train more people and need to have a contingency as we are all tied in this together.
