“We have no plans to grow it. Though we wish we could have more, because the business case is so great. But again, as I said, we strongly believe that the majority, 60-plus percent, should be owned by Finnish companies,” Dyukarev said.
Rosatom acquired the 34% stake in Fennovoima in late March for €35.9 million.
Concerning the current political situation in the world, Dyukarev said that the plant’s construction was not a short-term project and politics had no role in it.
Rusatom Overseas is to supply a 1,200-megawatt reactor to the plant. The construction of the plant will start no earlier than in 2015.
According to Finnish media, the cost of the project amounts to €6.5 billion, with Fennovoima expected to invest €1.6 billion and the reminder to come from Rosatom.
