This is fortum

Fortum is independent from plant vendors and technology suppliers.

Fortum has extensive and wide-ranging experience from all stages of nuclear newbuild projects, ranging from site selection and characterization to construction oversight and commissioning. We have gained our competence both from our own projects and from technical support and consulting services to customers in Finland and abroad, including newcomer countries. Based on this experience and our 40+ years of experience as an Owner-Operator of nuclear power plants, we fully understand the needs and challenges faced by an organization planning to contract nuclear power plants and to construct and eventually operate them. Fortum's experience and expertise benefit Customers who are developing nuclear newbuild projects based on large units and Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) alike.

As a major European utility, we work within several international forums to mitigate risks related to newbuild projects. We have participated in EUR Vol 3 assessments and projects related to large NPPs, covering several different types of reactor technologies. We conduct R&D related to emerging SMR technologies and on the feasibility of SMR projects, also together with international partners. We have up-to-date, hands-on experience in supporting Customers in their SMR projects.
