Finland extends Fortum nuclear reactor licenses

HELSINKI, July 26 (Reuters) - Finland has granted utility Fortum FUM1V.HE extention licences to continue operating its two nuclear reactors in Loviisa, southeastern Finland, until 2027 and 2030, the government said on Thursday.

Fortum’s current operating licences for the Loviisa 1 and Loviisa 2 reactors, of 1,500 megawatts capacity each, are valid until the end of 2007 and the ones granted today will replace them, the government said in a statement.

Finland’s nuclear safety watchdog STUK said earlier in July it saw no safety obstacles to granting the new licences.
