2018 Maintenance Team of the Year - Large Organization
A team from the Cameco Port Hope Conversion Facility was the first ever winner of the “Maintenance Team of the Year” award for a large facility in 2018. The award application described an exemplary, sustained continuous improvement effort undertaken from 2011. When awards committee representatives, Jim Reyes-Picknell and Andrew Jardine, went to visit the facility to verify the progress described in the nomination their expectations were exceeded stating, "This team's example stands as a source of inspiration to other organizations to achieve similar results and benefits by undertaking similar journeys."
The application for the award was generously accompanied by a comprehensive paper outlining the years-long, multi-faceted improvement effort. This paper is recommended reading.
