Operating Licence

The operation of a nuclear facility requires an operating licence issued by the Government. According to the present schedules, Posiva will apply for an operating licence in 2020.

In Finland, the operating licence for a nuclear power plant is only granted for a fixed term. In considering the duration of the licence, special attention is paid to the safety precautions and the estimated duration of operations. The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority can interrupt the operation of a facility if it is necessary for ensuring safety.
