Hanhikivi 1 construction site

Hanhikivi 1 construction site

Before construction of Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant begins, infrastructure as well as auxiliary and supporting buildings valued at EUR 400500 million will be built at the Hanhikivi site. See the picture gallery and video below to take a quick look at the construction site.

Construction of the nuclear power plant will start once Fennovoima has been granted a construction license for the plant. The nuclear power plant consists of a reactor building, a turbine building, a control room building, and fuel buildings, among others.

There were approximately 500 workers working at the construction site in the fall 2021. The highest number of people involved in the construction of the nuclear power plant at a time will be around 4,500–5,500.

The work at the Hanhikivi 1 construction site is responsible and complies with the Finnish regulations

Fennovoima, RAOS Project and labour market organizations have made a site agreement which specifies common rules for the site. The site agreement ensures that the construction of the nuclear power plant is done according to Finnish legislation and collaboration practices. The site agreement is one of the most important ways to prevent grey economy.

Based on the site agreement, we have a site register, site access control and Joint Employee Representatives on the site. With the site register, authorities and parties that have ordered works to be done on-site can get real-time information about the companies and employees currently working on-site as well as about the contractual relationships between parties.
