The resumption of power generation at the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear power plant will be delayed further by four more days, said the owner of the plant Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) in a press release on Wednesday.

The annual outage of Olkiluoto 3 will be extended by an additional four days due to additional turbine-generator investigations required to ensure reliable operation.

According to the updated schedule, the outage will now be completed on May 14.

Earlier on April 30, TVO said that the resumption of power generation at the Olkiluoto 3 would be delayed further by two more days due technical problems.

On April 28, the TVO announced that resumption of power generation at the plant will be delayed by four more days.

on April 21, the TVO announced that resumption of power generation at the plant will be delayed by six more days due technical problems.

On March 28, the TVO said that the outage of Olkiluoto 3 would be extended by five days and scheduled to be ended on April 20.

Power generation at the OL3 plant remained suspended due to the annual outage since March 2.

About 1,100 external professionals are involved in the outage.
