Virtual site visits

Virtual visits to Finnish nuclear facilities

At the Finlandia hall attendees have an opportunity to virtually visit Finnish nuclear facilities that cover the whole nuclear power plant life cycle.

Just follow the sign at the venue to virtual reality room. Without needing to travel any further, you’ll find yourself following the Hanhikivi 1 new build on site or looking inside Olkiluoto power plant. Step in to the modernized digital control room of a nuclear power plant, or into the state-of-the-art hot cell laboratory of VTT Centre for Nuclear Safety.

The virtual reality room is provided by VTT, FinNuclear, Fennovoima, TVO and Fortum.

Detailed program and list of required visitor information with related instructions will be sent at the end of December 2018.

The hot functional testing has now been successfully completed and the schedule for the next phases has been defined. The whole commissioning is performed with utmost care, without compromise. We will have a modern and safe plant, and its commissioning will strengthen our know-how for the operating phase. -Jouni Silvennoinen, Director of the OL3 Project.

ONKALO® has aided in collecting the data needed for the application for the final disposal facility construction licence which was granted in November 2015. In addition to facilitating bedrock research, ONKALO® also provides an opportunity to develop excavation techniques and final disposal techniques in realistic conditions. Later, the ONKALO® facilities can be put into use when building and using the repository -Posiva
