The construction of Darlington Nuclear Power plant, located in Toronto, Canada, was concluded in 1993. Its four units with a total generating capacity of 3,524 megawatts (MW) supply around 20% of the electricity needs of the province of Ontario, enough for a city with 2 million inhabitants. Darlington uses natural uranium as fuel to generate electricity from the heat created by nuclear fission.
More than 250 thousand metric tons of Portland cement and 650 thousand m³ of concrete supplied by Votorantim Cimentos were used in the construction. Heavily reinforced concrete was used in the construction of the buildings holding the four reactors. Their internal walls protect employees from radiation during the operation of the plant.
