The completion of the commissioning tests has not been progressing according to the updated schedule for commissioning issued by the plant supplier Areva-Siemens Consortium in June.
TVO cannot estimate whether or not the schedule will influence the start of the regular electricity production in September 2019 or the preceding production of electricity with varying power levels during the test program of OL3 EPR currently scheduled to start in May 2019.
OL3 plant supplier consortium is constructing the plant unit under a fixed-price turnkey contract. The supplier consortium companies, AREVA GmbH, AREVA NP SAS and Siemens AG, have joint and several liability for the contractual obligations until the end of the guarantee period of the plant unit.
