Produced by Ontario Power Generation, this video takes a look at the multi-layered safety systems at the Pickering nuclear plant east of Toronto. Its six operational Candu heavy water reactors were recently granted a five-year license extension by Canadian regulators. Their containment buildings each feature double walls nearly six feet thick. Additionally, each unit is connected to a separate vacuum building designed to remove and condense any radioactive steam produced during an accident.
