For close to 50 years, OPG’s Pickering Nuclear Generating Station (GS) has been a source of one of the world’s most valuable medical isotopes - Cobalt-60. Now, OPG will continue Pickering’s legacy at Darlington Nuclear GS in Clarington. The company has signed a new agreement with Nordion, an Ottawa-based health sciences company, to produce Cobalt-60 at Darlington’s reactors. The life-saving isotope, used to irradiate and sterilize medical devices and equipment, as well as certain foods, helps keep millions of people around the world safe and healthy.
