10.8.2007 at 11:33
A consortium comprising France’s Areva and Germany’s Siemens, the turnkey supplier of the third nuclear power station of Teollisuuden Voima (TVO) has informed the Finnish utility of yet another delay in construction, TVO said in a statement Friday.
Areva-Siemens has told TVO that the execution of the works, in particular the need to satisfy safety requirements, is more demanding than previously anticipated.
“TVO is of course disappointed to learn about this setback,” said in the statement Martin Landtman, TVO’s director of the Olkiluoto 3 project.
The latest delays are expected to push the start of commercial operation to 2011.
