The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) is proud to celebrate the hard work of Eclipse Automation and congratulate them on the virtual grand opening of the Eclipse Automation Nuclear Facility. The new facility, located at 135 Pinebush Road in Cambridge marks the latest investment by Eclipse into the local community and into the nuclear industry to create local jobs and broaden Canada’s commitment to efficient, safe and smart nuclear technology.

Eclipse Automation’s Nuclear Division is led by a select group of highly specialized engineers and project managers with decades of experience in the nuclear sector.
