What is a Small Modular Reactor (SMR)?
It’s our role to ensure nuclear reactors – big or small – are safe for Canadians and the environment. Learn more about small modular reactors and how they’re changing how the world thinks about nuclear power.
CANDU Nuclear Power Plant Safety Systems
CANDU Nuclear Power Plant Safety Systems
This CNSC video explains the main safety systems of Canadian nuclear power plants. The systems perform three fundamental safety functions: controlling the reactor, cooling the fuel and containing radiation. All of these systems are maintained and inspected regularly, and upgraded when necessary, to ensure plants meet or exceed strict safety standards established by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.
Understanding Nuclear Power Plants: Total Station Blackout
Understanding Nuclear Power Plants: Total Station Blackout
This CNSC video shows the progression of an accident scenario involving a total station blackout at a Canadian nuclear power plant. It describes multiple safety system layers and highlights that, even during an extremely severe accident, nuclear reactors in Canada will safely shut down and contain radioactivity.
