Loviisa 1 and 2 Nuclear Units Back Online After Planned Outage

Loviisa 1 and 2 nuclear units back online after planned outage

Both units at the Loviisa nuclear power plant in Finland are back online after annual maintenance outages.
Plant owner Fortum said Unit 1 was down for 21 days until Aug. 30, and Unit 2 was down for 16 days until Sept. 15. Unit 1 was down for three additional days due to hydrogen generator leak repairs and replacement of the turbine reheaters. Both units had one-quarter of the nuclear fuel replaced.
In Unit 2, besides the normal scheduled maintenance and fuel replacement, workers also measured the activity of the s-turbine steam lines and replaced an emergency diesel generator to an overhauled motor.
A total of 750 additional contractors were involved in the annual outage and ongoing modernization projects.
