Supply chain structure

Fennovoima’s supply chain structure is divided into Fennovoima’s own scope of works and the RAOS Project’s scope of works, which is agreed in the turnkey EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract of the nuclear power plant supply.

Fennovoima’s scope of work

The owner's scope covers the engineering and site construction work performed by contractors and consultants directly contracted by Fennovoima. It includes all the work preceding and related to licensing, conventional permits, site preparation, construction and other work and services (e.g. grid connection project, regional infrastructure projects, spent fuel interim storage, low and intermediate level waste final disposal facility), excluding the EPC contract scope.

Fennovoima’s own scope of construction covers mainly the auxiliary buildings, such as the training center, administration building and plant office.

Finnish companies as a majority

During 2016, Finnish companies have realized nearly all of the work within Fennovoima’s scope.

The training building was completed at the end of September as the first permanent building of the project. Its construction was implemented by Rakennusliike Sorvoja Oy from Oulainen.

Ruskon Betoni's two concrete batching plants were completed in June and August. The plants were built by Steel-Kamet Oy from Kalajoki.

Lapin Teollisuusrakennus Oy built the sorted waste station, which will be completed and taken into use in the spring of 2017. The station is operated by Sita Oy.

Destia excavated the site pit level -2 meters, and Graniittirakennus Kallio completed the work, which included the road areas, parking areas, as well as the water and sewage pipelines.

VS Turva-aidat completed the fencing of the site in November. 

Fennovoima's suppliers by country of origin. Total number of suppliers 158. (Situation 12/2016).

RAOS Project Oy’s scope of work

According to the EPC contract, the plant supplier RAOS Project is responsible for the supply of the  nuclear power plant on a turn key basis.

RAOS Project Oy has established representative offices in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Helsinki and Pyhäjoki. During the current project phase, the RAOS Project Oy representative office in St Petersburg coordinates and consolidates the activities of all representative offices. RAOS Project’s Pyhäjoki office will have the following functions:

  • Construction site organization and management
  • Organization and monitoring of Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant construction
  • Physical protection and security at the construction site
  • Coordination and supervision of construction and installation sub-suppliers
  • Occupational safety and health protection, fire safety and environmental protection at the construction site
  • Interaction with Fennovoima, the sub-suppliers, the municipality of Pyhäjoki, and supervisory and regulatory authorities

Most of the key organizations in the Hanhikivi 1 project EPC supply chain are subsidiaries of Rosatom. Rosatom incorporates companies from all stages of the technological chain, such as uranium mining and enrichment, nuclear fuel fabrication, equipment manufacture and engineering, operation of nuclear power plants, and management of spent nuclear fuel and nuclear waste. Nowadays, Rosatom encompasses more than 350 enterprises and organizations with a workforce above 250,000.

RAOS Project's suppliers in Hanhikivi 1 project by country. Number of suppliers 210, excluding lower tier sub-suppliers for earth removal works. (Situation 12/2016). 

On-going supply chain development

So far, the Rosatom subsidiary JSC Atomproekt has been selected to act as a general designer with overall responsibility for ensuring that the design of the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant is developed in accordance with and fulfils Finnish legislation and regulatory requirements, and the requirements set in the EPC contract.

JSC OKB Gidropress, also a Rosatom subsidiary, has been selected for developing the reactor plant basic design. The reactor plant chief designer Gidropress is responsible for integrated elaboration of the reactor plant design, including systems of safety, control, diagnosis and safety assurance in the design boundaries of the reactor plant.

JSC Concern TITAN-2 has been approved as the main contractor, being responsible for organization of detailed design and construction operations for the Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant.

SC Atomenergomash (AEM), which is also part of the Rosatom corporation, will provide the reactor building Long Lead Equipment, such as the nuclear steam supply system, to the Hanhikivi 1 project.

One of the recent selections is the approval of GE Alstom Power Systems for the supply of complete turbine generator set. Later on, RAOS Project will select the companies for the training of the operators and commissioning of the nuclear power plant.

Number of companies included in the  RAOS Project's supply chain from January 2016 to January 2017.
