Finland needs more energy
The consumption or electricity is not about to decrease in Finland. Electricity provides us with light, heat, growth and welfare. Electricity must be produced so that it will not burden our climate.
Fennovoima is a Finnish energy company that builds Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant to a green field site on Pyhäjoki, Hanhikivi peninsula. The operational power plant will produce one tenth of Finland’s electricity need, reliably and climate-friendly.
Fennovoima has received a new schedule estimation from the plant supplier RAOS Project on the Hanhikivi 1 -project’s milestones. The goal is to receive the construction license and to start the construction of the plant in 2021. Accordingly, the commercial operation of the plant would begin in 2028.
Support for the Hanhikivi 1 project by residents in Pyhäjoki and the surrounding municipalities remains steady. This is revealed in the survey conducted by the market research company Norstat Finland Oy, which publishes its results annually.
