Canada’s nuclear labs appoint private operator

A consortium of five private companies is to manage and operate Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, the scientific arm of Atomic Energy Canada Limited.

CNL, which is responsible for nuclear science and technology, decommissioning and waste management, and clean energy technologies, as well as the production of medical isotopes, will be run by the Canadian National Energy Alliance, a consortium that includes engineering firm SNC-Lavalin and Rolls-Royce.

“Our government is demonstrating support for jobs and growth in nuclear energy by investing in science and technology, advancing trade opportunities and maintaining a world-class safety regime,” said natural resources minister Greg Rickford, announcing the deal on 26 June.
