CNA Sponsorship Spotlight: Kinectrics

Students are the future of any industry. That’s one of the reasons why the Canadian Nuclear Association is pleased to have Kinectrics as the Gold-Level Sponsor of the Starting Your Nuclear Career student event at CNA2020.

Kinectrics’ origins can be traced back to 1912 as the technical and research division of Ontario Hydro, which was the largest electrical utility in North America. Ontario Hydro covered generation from nuclear, fossil, hydroelectric and renewable sources, as well as transmission and distribution. In the 1990s, the province broke-up and re-organized Ontario Hydro into multiple companies.

Kinectrics is a leader in engineering, testing, inspection, certification and consulting. Based in Toronto, it has more than 25 laboratory and testing facilities. Trusted by clients worldwide, its expertise is backed by a diverse fleet of field inspection equipment and an award-winning team of over 1,000 engineers and technical experts.

In December, Kinectrics opened a new 40,000-square-foot facility in Teeswater on nine acres of industrial property that will provide laundry services to Bruce Power. In 2017, Kinectrics opened the cornerstone of its expansion, a 37,000-square-foot facility at the Bruce Energy Centre, in Kincardine. With these two facilities, Kinectrics has invested more than $50 million in Bruce County initiatives over the past few years.

In November, partnership agreements between Ontario and international firms established the province as a stable global supplier of the life-saving medical isotope Lutetium-177. The agreements involved Bruce Power, Kinectrics, Framatome and ITM, a biotechnology and radiopharmaceutical group of companies based in Munich with a global network of production facilities. The two partnership agreements cover research, development, production, processing and export.

At CNA2020, the Kinectrics-sponsored Starting Your Nuclear Career event is set for Wednesday, February 26 from 15:00 to 17:00. This career information seminar is open to student delegates. It will feature recruitment professionals and a resume review from some of Canada’s leading nuclear companies.
