Fuel loading at the Olkiluoto-3 nuclear power plant under construction in Finland is on schedule for January 2020, plant owner and operator Teollisuuden Voima Oyj said.

TVO said all the fuel has now been delivered to the Olkiluoto site in southwest Finland and loading has been practised several times by moving a test assembly from storage into the pressure vessel and back.

During the loading process 241 fuel assemblies will be moved from storage to the pressure vessel.
