The testing of system, used to monitor and control the nuclear power plant, is based on the quality of the I&C documentation submitted by the Areva-Siemens consortium.

Arvea chief operating officer Philippe Knoche said the company’s technology meets the most stringent safety criteria, and has already been licensed in 16 countries to equip nearly 80 nuclear reactors with 14 different designs.

"This technology has been certified by the French, British, and Chinese safety authorities for the EPR reactor. Through our technological leadership, we are able to advance in Finland," Knoche added.

After testing, the I&C cabinets are scheduled to be shipped to Finland, for installation at the Olkiluoto site, in order to begin the testing phase before the reactor commissioning.
