AECL nuclear operations go up for bid

The Canadian government plans to solicit bids from private companies to operate Atomic Energy of Canada's (AECL) nuclear laboratories in Chalk River, Ontario.

According to a report by Bloomberg, the government would own AECL's nuclear laboratories, while a private contractor runs the operation.

AECL's facilities supply approximately half of the demand for the radioisotope molybdenum-99 in North America.

In 2011, Canada sold AECL's Canada Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) reactor division to SNC-Lavalin of Montreal.
