Transformer failure outside Unit 8 at Bruce B

An incident at the Bruce B Generating Station remains under investigation on Friday.

The failure of a transformer outside the Unit 8 building at Bruce B Thursday resulted in a release of mineral oil. The unit was offline for planned maintenance at the time.

The collection system that’s designed to capture any release of mineral oil was successful. There is no indication of mineral oil reaching Lake Huron.

One employee was treated for heat stress and is resting at home.
