Hanhikivi-1

REBAR AND CONCRETE PRODUCTION UNITS, TURBINE ASSEMBLY UNITS, WAREHOUSE FACILITIES, OFFICE BUILDINGS AND OTHER INDUSTRIAL STRUCTURES

Hanhikivi-1 is a VVER-1200 reactor nuclear power plant located in Pyhäjoki Municipality, Finland. The project began with the aim of ensuring the country’s energy independence and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions through the use of clean nuclear energy. The plant’s design capacity is 1200 MW, expected to cover 10% of Finland’s national power demand once the reactor is brought online. The construction of the nuclear power plant’s production and assembly site facilities began in 2017. It included rebar and concrete production units, turbine assembly units, warehouse facilities, office buildings, and other industrial structures (some 50 buildings and structures in total). In 2022, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Finnish energy company Fennovoima terminated its contract with the project’s contractor Rosatom, and all of the Hanhikivi-1 construction and design work has now been suspended.
