The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has issued a Licence to Abandon for Ontario Power Generationís (OPG) Bruce Heavy Water Plant (BWHP), located on the shore of Lake Huron, near Kincardine, Ontario.

The BWHP produced heavy water from 1973 until March 1998. In 2004, OPG was issued a decommissioning licence and has since completed the decommissioning of the facility. The Commission was satisfied that OPG met the requirements of subsection 24(4) of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and issued OPG a Licence to Abandon for the BWHP following a hearing February 3, 2014.

OPG can now use the site for other industrial purposes.
