Safety is always a priority in all aspects of our projects, from planning to construction and operation. The Finnish regulation and Fennovoima's design and implementation requirements are very demanding.
What is different in nuclear power production are the radioactive materials both used and generated in electricity production. To have a safe nuclear power plant, it needs to be designed, used and decommissioned in a way that ensures no harm comes to the environment or people. Preparedness for all kinds of threats is ensured with extensive risk analysis and thorough planning.
In the nuclear industry, we follow the principle of continuous improvement: safety is constantly strengthened and improved. These developments are monitored globally in order to share best practices and lessons learnt.
