Kincardine is host to Bruce Nuclear Power Development (BNPD) one of the world's largest nuclear plants. This nuclear facility is located on 2,300 acres of land producing 4,700 megawatts of electricity using CANDU reactors. The presence of this nuclear capability has provided high quality sustainable jobs for our community with projected sustainable growth. In addition, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) also has a strong presence within the local power industry and they are presently seeking approvals to develop and store low- and intermediate-level radioactive nuclear waste. This Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) project is at the onset of its six-month public comment period for the project's Environmental Impact Statement.
Our community is also host to several additional innovative and noteworthy industries including Greenfield Ethanol, BI-AX International, Canadian Agra, Superheat SGH Technologies Inc., Special Electronics & Design Inc.,Presto-Crest Ltd. and Bruce Agra Dehy Inc., to name a few.
Located a few kilometers north of Kincardine's downtown, The Bruce ECO-Industrial Park ("Bruce ECO") was founded on the premise that long-term economic policies must incorporate energy use in the most environmentally friendly way possible. This project is a sustainable industrial development that strives to integrate various industries for long-term economic growth and environmental sustainability (Eco-Industrial Park). Bruce ECO is developing into a community of processing, manufacturing and service businesses/facilities located together on a common integrated and interlinked property in accordance with ECO-Industrial Park principles.
PREDC is active with assisting existing and attracting new industry to the area along with working towards securing future developable lands to support the diverse growth of both heavy and light industry.
