Every year, Fennovoima participates in various charity campaigns. For the fourth time now, we will donate our Christmas card funds to the Good Holiday Spirit fundraising campaign.
I work at Fennovoima as a Layout Manager leading a group of six people consisting of layout engineers and 3D model experts.
We ensure that the various internal and external threats to a nuclear power plant's safety and electricity production are duly considered in the plant design.
In his article, Matthew Geraghty explains how Fennovoima is preparing for the commissioning of the Hanhikivi 1 plant.
I am leading the licensing unit at Fennovoima, whose primary goal is to secure the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant's construction license.
Our electrical engineering department's task is to ensure that the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant has all the necessary electrical and communication systems.
I work as a radiochemist at Fennovoima in the unit responsible for radiation safety and radioactive waste management of the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant.
At the beginning of June, Joachim Specht took up his new post as CEO of Fennovoima. He brings with him broad experience, proven competency and a management track record well-suited to meet his new challenges.
The procurement unit helps to ensure that Fennovoima has everything it needs. Procurement will become even more important in the next few years, as the focus of the work switches to Pyhäjoki.
We ensure that all work in the project area on the Hanhikivi headland is carried out in a manner that ensures environmental protection and the well-being of the local residents. The same principle will also apply to the operational phase of the plant...
We have opted to use reprocessed uranium (RepU) as the fuel in Hanhikivi 1. The RepU for the plant will be manufactured in Russia either by a MSZ plant in Elektrostal or the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant (NCCP). In both plants, the manufacturing...
The availability factor goal that we have set for the Hanhikivi 1 plant is ambitious and achievable, says Ville Määttä.
As I look back at the past year, I can only state that Fennovoima and our operating model underwent quite a change over the course of the year. Last year had its fair share of speed and dangerous situations. Most of the changes were positive.
Operational readiness is built already at the planning stage, both for the power plant and the organization that will use it in the future.
By high-quality implementation of the plant, we mean that the plant is safe and complies with Finnish legislation, regulations, and the plant supply contract, as well as produces the agreed volume of electricity.
A nuclear power plant is a large and complex entity consisting of a variety of systems and structures from different branches of technology. Hence, the plant design process is also complex and multidimensional, consisting of a large number of interfaces...
