Finland's EPR slows further

13 December 2006

Latest estimates for the completion of the Olkiluoto 3 reactor in Finland have pushed the development back until the turn of 2010-2011, owner operators Teollisuuden Voima Oy (TVO) report.

Following earlier delays related to concrete composition project director Martin Landtman said that while extensive reinforcement work of the reactor building is in progress, the construction works have proceeded slower than planned. The equipment manufacturing has continued according to plan, except for the manufacture of the main coolant lines with the plant supplier Areva deciding to recast a part of the pipe forgings.

Delays in the construction works and in manufacturing of the main coolant lines have affected the time schedule of the project, TVO said.
