International Press Visit Day

International Press Visit Day is organized a couple of times per year. Because of the COVID-19, just now all visits to Olkiluoto have been canceled at least to the end of October, possible to the end of the year 2020. We’ll update the information here as soon as we know the new instructions, which off course follow the situation of the virus.

The international Visit Day includes up-to-date information about the company Posiva Oy and the final repository for spent nuclear fuel ONKALO, plus a site tour.

The site tour includes:

  • a tour to the construction site of ONKALO – the site of the final repository for spent nuclear fuel in the depth of 450 meters in the bedrock,
  • a tour to the construction site of the encapsulation building,
  • a tour to the repository for low- and intermediate-level operating waste and to the ONKALO Research Gallery.

The visit starts at 12 a.m. and ends approximately at 6 p.m.


Information about the participants (nationality, name, passport number, place of residence, date & place of birth, and employer's name) must be provided two weeks in advance in order to confirm participation. All visitors must carry a passport or official identification card.

We reserve the right to make changes to the visit program. The content of the visit to the ONKALO site depends on the work being carried out at the site at the time.
