The Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII) and the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Nuclear Research Centre (ANRC) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding on May 7th.
The Memorandum of Understanding establishes the first international partner for the Ontario-based centre of excellence in Bruce County that Bruce Power is designing and that will have a global impact.
Wherever the NII is located, it is expected to bring an economic benefit to the immediate area as have the 52 Bruce Power suppliers who have opened offices throughout the region.
At the recent signing, James Scongack, Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Operational Services, reiterated the selection process. “We are building international partnerships and have to have a welcoming community when we are trying to create a world-class Centre of Excellence.”
