SOLD OUT! TOUR #1: McMaster Nuclear Reactor Tour - This one hour guided tour will provide an overview of the McMaster Nuclear Reactor (MNR). MNR first became operational in 1959 and was the first university-based research reactor in the British Commonwealth. Originally designed to operate at a maximum power of 1 MW, MNR was upgraded during the 1970s to its current rating of 5 MW with a maximum thermal neutron flux of 1 x 1014 neutrons/cm2s. MNR is classified as a medium flux reactor and it is by far the most powerful research reactor at a Canadian university – the handful of so-called “Slowpoke” reactors at other institutions typically operate at a power of 0.02 MW. The bus will pick up registrants from the Marriott Mississauga Meadowvale Hotel at 8:30am and will return back to the hotel by 11:15am*** To register for this tour, click here
TOUR #2: Enhanced CANDU 6 Control Room Mockup Tour: SNC-Lavalin - Come and see the only CANDU control room engineering simulator outside a utility in Canada. Get up close with one of only three engineering simulators of its kind in North America. Learn how SNC-Lavalin uses this full-scale facility to improve human factors and see the differences between today’s CANDU 6 control room and the new EC6 control room. You’ll get a chance to watch the response of a CANDU plant in an accident scenario. The bus will pick up registrants from the Marriott Mississauga Meadowvale Hotel at 8:30am and will return back to the hotel by 11:00am*** To register for this tour, click here
