People and competence

Committed and competent personnel is a prerequisite for the success of the Hanhikivi 1 project. Fennovoima’s organization and its competencies must meet the statutory requirements set for each project phase.

Currently, we are developing Fennovoima’s organization to meet the needs of the construction phase. In organizational planning, we are also already preparing for the operating phase of the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant. Our strengths in the global competition for nuclear power professionals are the interesting and challenging work, the opportunity to get involved in developing new nuclear power company operations and grow as a professional in a caring and encouraging work community.

By investing in well-being at work and a good working atmosphere, we support productivity, commitment and motivation. A functioning organizational structure, high-quality management practices and opportunities for professional development, among other similar factors, are key to a flourishing workplace well-being.

Learning organization

We support continuous learning of our employees by a variety of means. We have several training courses that are mandatory for all employees, and we also provide many voluntary courses to support the employees’ professional competencies. Visits to the Hanhikivi plant area are also an important part of getting familiar with the project.

In addition to the in-house training courses and training outside the company, learning by experience is essential in the nuclear power industry. Fennovoima engineers, in particular, visit peer companies to observe how other nuclear power companies operate in different parts of the world. Such visits are organized by the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), for example. Furthermore, several Fennovoima employees participate each year in a complementary training course on nuclear safety and nuclear waste management that is for all operators in the nuclear industry.
