Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO; Swedish: Industrins Kraft Abp, English: Industrial Power Corporation)[1][2] is a Finnish nuclear power company owned by a consortium of power and industrial companies. The biggest shareholders are Pohjolan Voima and Fortum. The company operates Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant, which consists of two BWRs (boiling water reactors), an EPR (European Pressurized Reactor) which is still under construction, and one half of a coal-fired power plant along with a wind farm.

The third reactor at Olkiluoto was expected to be ready in 2009, but last estimate is 2016. TVO has filed compensation claim for delays.[3]

On 21 April 2010, the Government of Finland decided to grant a permit for construction of fourth reactor at Olkiluoto.[4][5] The decision was approved by the Parliament on 1 July 2010.[6]
