The Proposal by Cameco Corporation for the Redevelopment of its Port Hope Conversion Facility (Vision 2010)

Cameco Corporation (Cameco) proposed the Vision 2010 project which involves a comprehensive redevelopment of its Port Hope Conversion Facility located in Port Hope, Ontario. The project consists of decommissioning and demolishing approximately 20 old or underutilized buildings, removing contaminated soils, building materials and stored historical wastes, and constructing new replacement buildings. On-site plant operations would be maintained while the works are being carried out. Three of the twenty buildings, that will be decommissioned include: North UO2/Waste Recovery Building; Metals Plant; and East UF6 Plant. Each of these three buildings are Class 1B nuclear facilities used to refine or convert uranium with a capacity of more than 100 tonnes per year.
