Fennovoima has appointed Joachim Specht as the company's new chief executive officer. The company, which is building the Russia-supplied Hanhikiv-1 nuclear unit in Finland said he will take up his post on 1 June.

Mr Specht comes from Fennovoima PreussenElektra, formerly E.ON Kernkraft, where he served as executive vice-president and head of nuclear engineering and consulting. He has also held positions at Areva, Framatome and Siemens/KWU.

Fennovoima announced in October that chief executive officer Toni Hemminki was leaving the company.

Mr Hemminki said earlier last year that the progress of Hanhikivi-1 was a disappointment in 2018 with a new estimated schedule postponing commercial operation by several years.

The new schedule was received from the plant supplier Raos Project, a subsidiary of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, at the end of 2018.
