PORT HOPE – After more than four years leading the Port Hope Area Initiative Management Office (PHAI MO), general manager Christine Fahey announced she will take up a new role next year with Atomic Energy of Canada’s (AECL) corporate restructuring team.
Fahey was asked to join the AECL restructuring team, which is working closely with the federal government to ensure AECL meets the science and technology priorities of Canada’s nuclear sector.
She was appointed to the PHAI in 2008, following the federal government decision to form a dedicated project organization to carry out the Port Hope and Port Granby projects. The Management Office consists of Natural Resources Canada, Public Works & Government Services Canada and AECL.
Since that time, detailed designs for both projects have been completed, environmental assessment and licensing approvals have been obtained and the Government of Canada has committed $1.28 billion to complete the projects over the next 10 years.
Over the past few months, several construction contracts have been awarded to build the infrastructure that is needed for the cleanup of historic low-level radioactive waste to begin.
