Nuclear Power in Finland

Finland relies on many sources of energy. Nuclear power is the biggest source of electricity with around 27 per cent of Finnish consumption.

In Finland, nuclear energy has been produced reliably and safely since the first reactor was taken into use in 1977. Today, there are four reactors in operation: two in Southern Finland, in Loviisa, and two on the west coast, in Olkiluoto. A fifth reactor is under construction in Olkiluoto.

Fennovoima will build a nuclear power plant to a greenfield site in Northern Finland, in the municipality of Pyhäjoki.
