HELSINKI - The Finnish Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) on Friday approved the fuel loading permit for the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear plant, marking an important step towards commissioning of the much-delayed reactor.
Originally meant to begin power output in 2010, the project has suffered a series of setbacks, the latest of which came last year when Finland's safety watchdog found valve problems.
"This is the most significant step in the commissioning of the plant unit so far," said Jouni Silvennoinen, project director at operator TVO.
The systems had been rigorously tested and TVO would be able to begin fuel loading soon, he said.
The first electricity production would start in October with regular operations from February 2022, TVO confirmed.
Once fully operational, the reactor's production will meet 14% of Finland's electricity demand, TVO said.
Olkiluoto 3, with a capacity of 1.6 gigawatts (GW), was meant to be finished in 2009.
There are four nuclear reactors operational in Finland. Olkiluoto 3 will be its first new nuclear facility in four decades, with another project by a Finnish-Russian consortium underway. REUTERS
