Reliable green energy with nuclear power
Nuclear power is a stable and reliable way of producing electricity to meet the needs across Finland. With renewable energy sources, nuclear power plays a crucial role in the battle against climate change. Olkiluoto 3 is Finland’s most significant contribution to the climate effort.
Pohjolan Voima’s joint venture Teollisuuden Voima TVO produces electricity at its nuclear plant in Olkiluoto, Eurajoki. With the start of the regular electricity production of the Olkiluoto 3 on 16 April 2023, TVO produces about 30 per cent of all Finland’s electricity. Pohjolan Voima is the largest shareholder of TVO.
