The Olkiluoto 3 EPR reactor reaches a new milestone

October 23, 2013

PRESS RELEASE

The construction teams at Olkiluoto 3 have successfully completed the installation of the reactor vessel head of the Finnish EPR. This major step for the project marks the completion of the installation of heavy equipment for the Finnish EPR, making it the first EPR with a fully equipped reactor vessel, which is ready to accommodate a “core” of fuel assemblies. The installation of the reactor vessel head is a highly precise operation and was executed using the EPR’s polar crane. This piece of equipment allows heavy components to be moved around within the reactor building.
