Abstract

In 2016, the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station enjoyed one of the best years in the stations history. This strong performance has continued in 2017 and is characterized by historically low Forced Loss Rate, well managed outages, and record setting periods of continuous operation on several of the Pickering units. This performance stands in sharp contrast to that of the preceding ten years or so. This presentation will describe the contributors and causes of past performance shortfalls and how Ontario Power Generation has driven improvements in human and equipment performance during this period.
