​Both units at Fortum's Loviisa nuclear power plant are back in production after their annual maintenance outages. Unit 1 was down for 21 days until 30 August 2015, and Unit 2 for approximately 16 days until 15 September. The planned duration of Loviisa 1 outage was exceeded by 3 working days due to hydrogen generator leak repairs and replacement of the turbine reheaters.

This year both Units underwent a so-called short outage during which one quarter of the fuel in both units was be replaced.
