Loviisa power plant takes all practically and reasonably possible measures in order to avoid radiation exposure to any employees, other people or the environment. Our three basic principles of radiation protection are based on the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). The ICRP recommendations have also been taken into account in the Radiation Act of Finland.
Radiation and environment
The radiological environmental impact of the normal operation of Loviisa nuclear power plant is very small. The annual radiation dose caused by the operation of the nuclear power plant to the residents in the vicinity is so small that it can not be measured by any meter. Therefore doses in the environment are estimated theoretically based on release information and meteorological data to a theoretical representative person who lives in the vicinity of the plant.
