Our mission is a carbon-free future. The basis of our company is laid in providing carbon-free electricity at a stable price for our owners. Fennovoima’s Hanhikivi 1 project – with its 1200 MW electricity output – is a significant contribution to the energy security of Finland and the entire EU. By constructing and later operating Finland’s sixth nuclear power plant we are directly contributing to the sustainable development of energy production and facilitating climate protection. The project also supports other EU objectives by stimulating Finland’s and Europe’s economy and generating jobs. The project is now in licensing phase. The construction of the VVER-1200 nuclear power plant is to start in 2019 and commercial operation in 2024.
