All lights are green 🟢 for the imminent start-up of the first EPR nuclear reactor in Europe 💡
“The authorization for criticality and low power tests issued by the [Finnish] nuclear safety authority (STUK) to Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) now allows the company to start a nuclear reaction for the first time in the third reactor of the Olkiluoto power plant, its unit (OL3).
STUK indicates that the conditions for the criticality and low power tests are met, and the commissioning tests carried out before the first criticality show that the plant is operating as intended. ”
