Situated in Finland, Olkiluoto 3 is the first generation 3 EPR to have its construction launched (TVO OL3). Since 2006 Tebodin Peters Engineering France has participated in various aspects of the project using its know-how in PDMS design: steelwork design, layout and piping design. It also participated in the fluid system checks and the following up of electrical contracts.
The project has now passed an important step as the pressure and leak-tightness tests of the primary circuit have been successfully completed. During the tests, the containment was pushed up to 6 bars for as long as 30 hours (more detail:World Nuclear News). This brings the project one step closer to completion and to its operating launch (predicted to be 2016).
