Reduction of power at Fortum’s Loviisa nuclear power plant Unit 1

The power of Loviisa power plant unit 1 will be reduced by half on Thursday Wednesday 8 August, 2019 due to preventative repair work in the generator cooling system. A decision to conduct preventive repair work was done due to a detected leak in the generator cooling system in unit 2 on Wednesday 7 August, 2019.

The repair work is expected to take a few hours and the production back to be normal by evening.
The Unit 1 can be operated safely at reduced power.  The Unit 2 is in normal production.
The situation does not endanger people, environment or the power plant.
