Olkiluoto 3 nuclear reactor earns approval of overall I&C system plan


Finnish Nuclear Safety Authority approves overall instrumentation and control (I&C) system plan for the Olkiluoto 3 EPR reactor.

AREVA welcomes the approval by the Finnish Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) of the overall instrumentation and control (I&C) system plan for the Olkiluoto 3 EPR reactor.

Designed for the operation and control of a nuclear power plant, the I&C system is a key component for reactor operations.

This new, important step is part of a series of significant progress made in 2014 for the Olkiluoto 3 EPR reactor. The reactor containment tightness tests were successfully completed in February. On April 1st, AREVA’s teams in Erlangen, Germany received the green light from the client TVO to begin with the testing of the I&C system at the test bay.

Our I&C technology meets the most stringent safety criteria and has already been licensed in 16 countries to equip nearly 80 nuclear reactors with 14 different designs. This technology has been certified by the French, British, and Chinese safety authorities for the EPR reactor.
