In 3 hours Darlington Unit 1 will have been running at 100% CF for 2 years straight (730 days). Will be interesting to see how long it will stay up for without a maintenance outage, I expect until after Unit 2 is back from its refurbishment at least. The current record for a CANDU, and for the longest time, any nuclear power plant was 894 days held by Pickering Unit 7. If Darlington bests that the next milestone is 962 days, a record set last year by another HWR, a 220MW unit in India which is basically a CANDU clone.

On an unrelated note, our oldest operating station, Pickering, produced 23.6TWh last year, a site record marking 87% Capacity Factor from its six operating units and producing 17.2% of Ontario's electricity.

CANDU's refuel online, so an outage is dictated by other maintenance items, which is why CANDU's have typically held the record for runtimes.

It's a Canadian designed nuclear reactor. It's set up to generate electricity. This one is in Ontario.

This is old technology. The world is moving to fusion (hopefully).

Not anytime soon however. Old tech ULE is still preferable to vapourware wink If/when they do get fusion sorted, it will be a game-changer for sure. In the interim, it looks like 4th gen fission will be the "next big thing" with SMR's.
