Fennovoima proceeding towards signing the plant supply contract

The 60 shareholders of Voimaosakeyhtiö SF have decided about their continuation in Fennovoima nuclear power plant project. The shareholders responded to the investment decision proposal given for them in early September, aiming at starting the operation of the nuclear power plant in Pyhäjoki in 2024.

At the moment, Voimaosakeyhtiö SF owns Fennovoima completely. 45 of the shareholders of Voimaosakeyhtiö SF have decided to continue in Fennovoima. All decisions are conditional for the time being, as the negotiations between Fennovoima and Rosatom are ongoing.

As the result of these decisions, 84 per cent of the energy production of the Fennovoima's nuclear power plant is now reserved. The Voimaosakeyhtiö SF shareholder companies that continue in the project have reserved slightly over half (50,28%) of the production of the 1200 MW nuclear power plant planned by Fennovoima. The planned ownership of Rosatom is a third (34%) of Fennovoima.

During the next weeks and months Voimaosakeyhtiö SF carries out internally ownership rearrangements: some of the shareholders that decided to continue want to increase their share, some want to decrease it. Voimaosakeyhtiö SF is also assessing taking possible new owners to the project. The Finnish company Voimaosakeyhtiö SF will remain the main owner of Fennovoima.

Fennovoima and Rosatom aim at signing the plant supply contract during 2013.
