Fennovoima Oy’s construction licence application

In June 2015, Fennovoima Oy submitted to the government a construction licence application concerning the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant and its updated version in August 2015.

To supplement the construction licence application as conditioned by the decision-in-principle, in June 2016, Fennovoima Oy submitted to the coordinating authority an environmental impact assessment programme for the company’s own spent nuclear fuel disposal facility. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment gave its final statement in December 2016.

The government is expected to process the construction licence application in 2021 at earliest. Before this, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment will update the circulation for comment related to the application, due to the time that has passed.
