Hanhikivi 1 brings vitality and well-being

The Hanhikivi 1 project affects the living environment and everyday life in Pyhäjoki and its surrounding municipalities. The project will bring vitality and well-being to the area, but the construction work will also have temporary adverse effects on the local living environment.

Fennovoima and RAOS Project participate in developing the area in cooperation with public, private, and third sector actors because we want to help the region prepare for the changes brought about by the project. 

The Hanhikivi 1 project will bring new residents to Pyhäjoki and its surrounding municipalities, and the need for services will increase. New jobs will be created in the area and the range of services will be diversified.

The adverse effects of the construction works are limited and related to, for example, the increase in heavy traffic and the temporary turbidity of the seawater caused by water construction work. However, the operation of the nuclear power plant will cause little harm to the surrounding area.

We tell about the economic, social and environmental impact of the Hanhikivi 1 project at this website. You can follow the proceeding of the works on the construction site in the news feed on this website, on Fennovoima's social media channels, and at our public events.
