Building a strong supplier network for Ontario

At Ontario Power Generation, we take pride in the quality of our supplier relationships across the province. From nuclear-class turbine spindles the size of a truck to the smallest bolt, thousands of parts and supplies play a critical role behind the scenes every day in OPG’s generation of clean, reliable power.

See how we are working with local suppliers to help power Ontario’s economy.

Managing an expansive supply chain network

OPG’s Supply Chain organization procures and manages more than $2 billion worth of materials and services annually to support the generation of OPG’s nuclear, hydroelectric, thermal, and solar operations.

This includes managing the inventory to support 920,000 unique pieces of equipment across OPG’s nuclear fleet, with about 3,500 absolutely critical parts for the Pickering and Darlington nuclear stations sitting in stock at all times at a sprawling central warehouse in Whitby.

Building and maintaining a strong supply chain network ensures that we are able to deliver clean, reliable, low-cost power while also supporting Ontario’s industries and trades for the betterment of the province.
