Current implementation status
In 2015, the NPP site was handed over by the Customer, Fennovoima Oy, to RAOS Project Oy. At present, site preparation works are performed pursuant to the schedule approved by Fennovoima Oy.
Harbour basin dredging has been completed. Currently, drilling and blasting operations and soil extraction for the foundation pit take place.
Environmental monitoring is continuously carried out with respect to dust content, noises and vibration during the pit excavation and the crushing plant operation. Water runoffs from the settling pond and seawater discharge at the site are also monitored.
The NPP construction shall actually begin (the “first concrete” stage) once Fennovoima Oy has obtained the NPP construction license, which is expected in 2018. Commercial operation is expected to begin in 2024.
