Saint John, Canada - Kinectrics Inc. announced the grand opening of its new office space in Saint John, New Brunswick.

Guests were able to visit the new location and participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of what is expected to be an economic boost for the area.

In attendance to celebrate this milestone were Andy Hayward, Director of Advanced Reactor Development of NB Power, Hon. Donna Reardon, Mayor of the City of Saint John, Hon. Arlene Dunn, minister responsible for Economic Development and Small Business and minister responsible for Opportunities NB, Julie West, Kinectrics’ Vice President of Nuclear Safety and Licensing, and Yung Hoang, Kinectrics’ Vice President of Design Engineering Services.

“This new location will enable Kinectrics to continue working closely with NB Power and SMR vendors,” said David Harris, President and CEO of Kinectrics. “Kinectrics aims to invest in the province of New Brunswick which will help build capacity and increase capability of the local supply chain in support of the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station, and for new advanced reactor development and deployment in the province.”

This regional presence in Saint John will enable the creation of local, well-paying jobs in the nuclear industry. In addition, it will help develop local investment for the community while working with local suppliers and vendors in the energy sector and beyond.

“Our province is a center of excellence for Energy Innovation, and leads in global research for this sector,” said minister responsible for Economic Development and Small Business and minister responsible for Opportunities NB Arlene Dunn. “We recognize the benefits of adding Kinectrics to our already robust energy ecosystem – this company is a tremendous asset for our province, and we are proud to invest in the future growth and prosperity of New Brunswick.”

With Kinectrics’ long history supporting the nuclear industry, like the CANDU-6® at Point Lepreau over the course of its lifespan, this solidifies its commitment to being a part of future nuclear power research, development, deployment, operation, and maintenance. With the opening of this new office, Kinectrics can support the government of New Brunswick’s vision of investing in new nuclear development, including SMRs.

“New Brunswick has a long history in the energy sector," said Natural Resources and Energy Development Minister Mike Holland. “Our province is poised to become a global leader in advanced SMRs. Having Kinectrics set up shop in our province is another invaluable resource to help us achieve that goal.”

“The work we are collectively doing to develop the supply chain in New Brunswick is part of a larger strategy to support clean energy sources and position NB Power to continue to fulfil our mandate of providing safe and reliable electricity to New Brunswickers,” said Lori Clark, NB Power President and CEO (Acting).​​
