Bruce Power Limited Partnership is a Canadian business partnership composed of several corporations. It exists as a partnership between Cameco Corporation (31.6%), TransCanada Corporation (31.6%), BPC Generation Infrastructure Trust (31.6%), the Power Workers Union (4%) and The Society of Energy Professionals (1.2%). It is the licensed operator of the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, located on the shores of Lake Huron, roughly 250 kilometres northwest of Toronto, between the towns of Kincardine and Saugeen Shores. When all eight units are in service, the facility is capable of supplying up to 6,300 MWe of electricity. This would make it the second largest nuclear complex in the world. Presently this is not the case, as Units 1 & 2 are shut down for refurbishment until 2011. Current capacity is approximately 5,120 MWe which is enough to power one fifth of Ontario.
