Fortum's Loviisa 1 nuclear power plant unit back in production

Fortum's Loviisa nuclear power plant's unit 1 was restarted today, 13 July, at
13.55 local time after an automatic shutdown on Monday. The power plant is
expected to reach full production during tomorrow.

The malfunction that caused the shutdown occurred in the unit's turbine
system's main steam line during regular weekly testing. As result, a
malfunctioning selection switch of the isolation valves was replaced. The
incident did not cause any danger to people, the power plant or the
environment.
