Olkiluoto-3 test production phase resumes after repair work
Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO), owner and operator of the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant in Finland, has resumed Olkiluoto-3’s test production phase, following completion of maintenance and repair work at the new reactor’s turbine island, the company announced this week.
TVO had announced in June a delay to the unit’s commercial start of some three months—from September to December—after material that had detached from the steam guide plates was found in the turbine’s steam reheater in May, necessitating repair work and a halt to testing.

The Reactor Technology Award recognizes an individual(s) who have made original and outstanding contributions to the advancement of reactor technology. The award should emphasize recognition of advances in the areas of design and safety in reactor technology. The award consists of a plaque and a $2,000 monetary award. It is to be made no more frequently than once per year, and it is normally conferred during the Winter Meeting of the Society.
Nominees may be from any nation, but they must not be deceased at the time the awardee is selected. The nominee need not be an ANS member.
The nominee should be the author of one or more peer-reviewed original technical papers or patents contributing to the advancement of reactor technologies.
This award was established in 1993 at the request of the Atomic Energy Society of Japan with $30,000 in earnings received from the ANP 1992 Topical Meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
The selection committee consists of seven (7) members – six (6) from the Honors and Awards Committee and one (1) from Atomic Energy Society of Japan, appointed by AESJ. They review the nominations and make their recommendation to the chair of the Honors and Awards Committee. If the committee determines that there is no candidate of sufficient merit, the committee may recommend that the award not be made in that year.
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to email@example.com.
