The Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment Project is currently the second largest infrastructure project in Canada for 2018. Aecon Industrial/Nuclear is a strategic partner in this $12 billion project.

The owner of the project is Ontario Power Generation which has a long history and specifications for using Crosby products. Products most used by Aecon and OPG include; shackles, eyebolts, hoist rings, sling hooks, snatch blocks, and master rings.

The contractor, Aecon, has an immense safety conscious focus and partners with many of Crosby’s strategic local distributors in southern Ontario.

The Darlington Nuclear completion date is expected in 2025 and will replace fuel channels, feeder pipes, and generators for four reactors on-site. This refurbishment will extend the operation of the plant for another 30 years.

Chad McDonald, H&S advisor for Aecon Group, said, “Thanks for coming out Wade, the guys are all saying this was the best tool box talk we ever had.”

Aecon chooses Crosby because we provide much more than superior rigging and material handling products. Crosby continues to offer the highest quality technical support and on-site safe rigging clinics at Aecon’s utilities division in 2018.
