i do not know if this was tried at point lepreau or gentilly they are Candu as well
at Gentilly GE had build back-up power with 2 or 3 jet turbine to supply NPP if needed
Pt Lepreau and Gentilly II both have this capability of high power condenser dump. They are a "CANDU 6" design and the same design is used in the export reactors in China, Romania, South Korea and Argentina.
Gentilly is somewhat unique in that there is a 382 MW gas turbine plant built beside it that is used for grid peaking as well as a backup power source for G2. There are 4, 82Mwe GE gas turbines there.
