Information for Companies

      

The Hanhikivi 1 project provides unique work and contracting opportunities.

There is ample information available to companies that wish to be involved in the project. In addition to Fennovoima, information is provided by the municipalities of the Pyhäjoki region, entrepreneur organizations, and company development organizations. Furthermore, Fennovoima assists the plant supplier, RAOS Project, and the main contractor, Titan-2, in their cooperation with Finnish companies.

The contracts relating to the Hanhikivi 1 project are well suited for Finnish companies. Fennovoima’s training building in the Hanhikivi headland, built on contract by Rakennusliike Sorvoja Oy from Oulainen and completed in 2016, provides a good example in this respect. Currently, Sorvoja is under contract to build a main gate building for Fennovoima.

Extensive earthwork has been and will be carried out in the area prior to the construction of the actual power plant, with many small companies involved in the effort. More work opportunities are available in the fields of hydraulic construction work, dredging, and environmental monitoring.

Focus on Documentation

The special characteristics of the Hanhikivi 1 project include detailed advance planning, authority inspections, and careful documentation of the work phases. All work phases must be traceable and reviewable for up to several years afterwards so that the safety and quality of the product under any conditions can be ensured.

Fennovoima will contract out the construction of various auxiliary buildings in the Hanhikivi headland. Furthermore, Fennovoima is responsible for the electrification of the plant site and the construction of the associated public utility services. The majority of the infrastructural construction projects will be implemented between 2015 and 2018.

The plant supplier, RAOS Project, is responsible for all operations relating to the design, licensing, construction, and commissioning of the power plant, as well as associated project management. The plant supplier has selected the Russian Titan-2 as its main contractor. The main contractor bids out most of the contracts relating to the site.

Fennovoima and Titan-2 are collecting the contact information of contractors and service providers interested in cooperation in their electronic registers. For any company, the first step towards participation in the Hanhikivi 1 project is to register in both the Fennovoima database and the Titan-2 database.

The fact that we can rise to the challenges presented by this project means that hardly any concrete engineering job in the world is beyond our competence.”
