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.

Presented at the
ANS Winter Meeting or THD Topical Meeting
The THD Technical Achievement Award recognizes outstanding past or current technical achievement. The Technical Achievement Award is the highest award given by the Thermal Hydraulics Division. It is normally presented to a member of THD; however, nominees need not be members of THD. Any ANS member is eligible for the Technical Achievement Award.
The THD governing documents do not preclude an officer of the THD from receiving the award. The THD Technical Achievement Award is based on a major contribution to the state of the art, an important publication, a major technical achievement, or a sustained record of accomplishment and technical excellence in the art or science of Thermal Hydraulics.
The award consists of an engraved plaque and a monetary award of $2,000. The award is presented at the ANS Winter Meeting or a Topical Meeting supported by the Thermal Hydraulics Division.
This award was established by the Thermal Hydraulics Division in 1984 and became a division-administered ANS award in 2006.
Nominations for this award are made directly by the THD membership or others in the technical community. Anyone in the technical community may submit a nomination package for the award.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
The THD Honors & Awards Committee, rather than the THD officers or Executive Committee, is responsible for reviewing the nomination packages and selecting an appropriate winner. If members of the THD Honors & Awards Committee are considered for the THD award, they recuse themselves from the selection process.
Nominations are valid for three years from the date of submittal but are only re-entered by the nominator sending an addendum, updating the original nomination, or sending a letter requesting that their candidate by re-entered on the next ballot.
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
