Site Visits for General Public
Fennovoima arranges two open door days at the Hanhikivi peninsula site annually: one in the autumn and one in the spring.
At the moment, preliminary infrastructure and excavation work for the nuclear power plant is being carried out at the Hanhikivi 1 site. Fennovoima expects to receive its construction licence in 2018, after which construction work for the actual power plant starts.
Although there are no actual visitor services at the site, it is possible to see the site during open door days which are heald bi-annually They are announced in local newspapers and on Fennovoima’s own Facebook page. Visits to the site are carried out as guided bus tours.
The latest open door day was arranged on the 15th of October 2016. You can watch a video above (now in Finnish, but will be available also in English) or see photos taken during the day.
