TVO has been generating electricity for Finnish society for almost 40 years. Over the years, the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant units have been modernized in many ways, and their safety has also been improved.
Top capacity factorsThe capacity factors of the Olkiluoto power plant units, very high even by international standards, testify to TVO’s nuclear power competence. Ever since the early 1990s, the OL1 and OL2 capacity factors have remained between 93 and 97 percent.
The high capacity factors are proof of the reliable operation of the plant units. This is a result of the maintenance efforts of highly skilled personnel, and the continuous improvement of daily operations and plant safety.
Competent personnelThe safe operation of a nuclear power plant requires both up-to-date technology and competent personnel. Competence ensures that duties are correctly attended to at all times and under all circumstances.
TVO continuously organizes training events in order to maintain the professional skills and competence of its personnel. Most of the training is related to the company’s own operations: plant and operating technology, in particular. For more information, please see the company section .
