The Finnish government has granted a new operating licence for both units at Fortum’s Loviisa NPP until the end of 2050. “Continuing production at Loviisa is above all an investment in providing the power Finnish society needs to meet its ambitious climate targets,” said Fortum’s President & CEO Markus Rauramo. “Decarbonisation of our industries requires large volumes of clean and reliable electricity that cannot be covered by new additional and intermittent sources only. At the same time, nuclear… is also a key enabler for growth of wind and solar in the Nordic power system.”

Finland’s Teollisuuden Voima (TVO) said the EPR reactor at unit 3 of the Olkiluoto NPP (OL3) will now resume electricity production 25 February with regular electricity production expected to start on 29 March. This represents an additional delay of five days, following the detection of a valve fault during start-up of the reactor. TVO said the inspections by the plant supplier [Areva-Siemens] of the OL3 turbine island had been completed. “However, during the startup of the plant unit, a valve fault was observed, which must be repaired during a cold shutdown before continuing the test production phase.

Finland’s Teollisuuden Voima (TVO) said the EPR reactor at unit 3 of the Olkiluoto NPP (OL3) is expected to operate at full power in February after the feedwater pumps impellers are replaced. The reactor began generating power in test mode earlier in January. The new impellers, which will be installed in all four of OL3’s feedwater pumps during the current production break, will have more robust measurements.
