France’s Alstom Power Systems, part of GE, has been awarded a contract by RAOS Project Oy, a subsidiary of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, to supply the turbine generator order for Fennovoima's Hanhikivi 1 NPP to be built in Finland. Rosatom's affiliate, Rusatom Energy International, announced the contract in an official press release on 3 August. The contract covers the design and supply of turbine generator equipment package as well as advisory services for installation and commissioning work. The delivery and installation schedule will allow commissioning of the plant to begin in 2023 for commercial operation in 2024. Alstom Power System will supply most parts of the equipment for the turbine island over the next seven years. Under the contract terms, the main part of equipment of the turbine island will be delivered before 2021. A slow-speed turbine (1,500 rpm) will be used in the turbine generator set based on Alstom’s Arabelle technology, and design work will begin immediately. The Hanhikivi-1 unit will be based on Russia’s AES-2006 Generation III+ pressurised water reactor design.
