Fennovoima, which is in charge of building the 1200 megawatt plant in Pyhäjoki, said it expects the Finnish government to issue the permit in 2019. However, the company wants to complete as much of the infrastructure work as possible before then. “I have not thought what will happen if the permit is not granted,” said Fennovoima’s construction director Jouni Sipiläinen. “We will get it,” he said. At the moment, 200 people work at the site daily, doing excavation work and building temporary offices and accommodation units. The building work is expected to accelerate next year as the construction of office space begins.
