Readiness to construct the nuclear power plant

Readiness to begin construction must be achieved well before the nuclear power plant construction license is granted to us.

Readiness to begin construction must be achieved well before the nuclear power plant construction license is granted to us.

A key prerequisite for starting construction is that the technical design is sufficiently advanced. This involves both the basic design of the nuclear power plant and the preliminary safety analysis report (PSAR), which is central when applying for a construction license. Equally important is the readiness of the supply chain: organizations involved in the construction must be capable of implementing the plans and supervising the implementation according to those plans.

In addition, the preparations of the project site must be ready for the construction of the nuclear power plant. This means that the necessary infrastructure and auxiliary buildings have been built and the nuclear power plant construction site has been established. In addition, there must be effective practices related to occupational safety, environmental impact management and, for example, construction supervision in place at the project site.

The readiness of Pyhäjoki and the neighboring municipalities is also important. We cooperate with the local actors in order to improve their capabilities to prepare for changes brought about by the project, including the increased number of residents and the volume of services needed, but also to help them benefit from the opportunities brought by the project.

Building a nuclear power plant

The construction project of a nuclear power plant can be roughly divided into three phases: two phases in preparation for the construction of the plant, during which the infrastructure and auxiliary buildings are built, and the actual construction of the nuclear power plant.
