On October 1st, 2021 Stern Laboratories was pleased to host the Ontario Energy Minister, Todd Smith and staff on a facility tour to showcase the important services the small private company provide to support the operation and on-going refurbishments at both Bruce Power and Ontario Power Generation nuclear stations. The tour highlighted the high-quality products and services Stern Laboratories provides to the local nuclear industry such as flow meter calibrations, flux detector removal tooling and flasks, and remote nuclear fuel handling equipment. In addition, experimental hardware and facilities, such as the Critical Heat Flux (CHF) Test Facility, the full scale CANDU fuel simulation, and various other thermal hydraulic facilities were discussed along with their impacts on the nuclear industry both locally and internationally. Stern Laboratories Inc. continues to strive to provide quality products and services in support of safe, low carbon nuclear energy in Canada and looks forward to working with the industry to develop new Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology in Canada.
