The total number of the personnel to undergo the basic course program is 300, i.e. 50 Fennovoima employees per session. The 1st training session is scheduled for December 2020.

Victoria Zhuravleva, Head of NPP personnel training division, RAOS Project Oy, said: “Over 5 years, we have built considerable experience working with our customer Fennovoima, and formulated the specifics of training Fennovoima’ specialists and the required systematic approach."

Kim Stålhandske, Operational Readiness Manager, Fennovoima Oy, said: “It is essential for us to achieve operational readiness in due time before the initial fuel loading. To reach it, we will develop our organizational competence with the technical training program realized by the plant supplier RAOS Project...
