Dear nuclear power opponents all over the world! WE URGENTLY ASK FOR YOUR HELP TO STOP THE NUCLEAR MADNESS IN FINLAND BY SIGNING A PETITION TO THE FINNISH DECISION MAKERS – please distribute this message as broadly as possible –

The OL3 EPR reactor being built by the French company Areva is 10 years late and costs are skyrocketing. Regular electricity production is scheduled to start in September 2019 but is uncertain.  – The Russian 1.2GW AES-2006 reactor, Hanhikivi 1, planned to be built by the Russian company Rosatom, is plagued with problems.

The plant is expected to be commissioned in 2024. The costs, originally estimated at€5  billion, have risen to €6,5 – 7 billion. The licensing process was supposed to be finished in 2018, but is running late because Rosatom has failed to deliver all required documents on time.The estimated time for delivery of the outstanding documents is at the end of 2019.  – In 2020 Finland is planning to start operation of its longterm storage facility for spent fuel, Onkalo, the first of its kind in the world.

This is despite the fact that the method for the facility is based on the same KBS-3 concept which was rejected by the Swedish Environmental Court in January 2018. This remarkable decision has had no impact whatsoever on the Onkalo project in Finland.   Please find as pdf attachment the full text to be delivered at the beginning of 2019 to the Finnish President, Government, Members of Parliament together with individual signatures collected in Sweden.
