PTAG Inc. Awarded Role As Collaborative Contracting Facilitator And Coach For NWMO's Deep Geological Repository Project

(MENAFN- PR Newswire) TORONTO, Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -
In a significant step forward for
Canada's plan to manage used nuclear fuel,
the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has entrusted PTAG Inc.
with the pivotal role of Collaborative Contracting Facilitator and Coach for its ground-breaking
project. This project underscores a national commitment to the safe, long-term management of Canada's used nuclear fuel, ensuring the protection of people and the environment for generations.

Recognizing the complexities inherent in Canada's plan for used nuclear fuel,
NWMO has adopted the Industrial Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) model, a method pioneered by the Construction Industry Institute (CII) in 2016, which emphasizes collaborative planning and execution. PTAG, having contributed to the development of Industrial IPD alongside global industry partners and academic leaders, brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record to the project.

IPD stands at the forefront of collaborative contracting, offering a framework that significantly enhances project outcomes through improved quality management, cost savings, and schedule performance. PTAG's leadership in the first project utilizing Industrial IPD - a hydroelectric refurbishment in Ontario, Canada - showcases the tangible benefits of this approach, even in the face of challenges such as the pandemic and supply chain disruptions.

With a rich history of project management success with waste management, nuclear energy, and large-scale mining projects, PTAG is poised to leverage its global experience in collaborative contracting to the benefit of
Canada's plan. "We are extremely proud to support NWMO in implementing Industrial IPD for the
project." says Michael Dubreuil , Managing Partner at PTAG. "This partnership not only highlights our commitment to innovation in project delivery but also reinforces our dedication to enhancing industry standards and outcomes."

The engagement of
Canada's plan for used nuclear fuel
not only marks a milestone in Canada's approach to
managing its used
but also signals a broader industry shift towards more collaborative, efficient, and sustainable project delivery methods. PTAG's role as facilitator, trainer, and coach, sets a new benchmark for excellence in the execution of large, complex industrial projects across Canada and beyond.
