Helsinki - The Finnish government granted an operating permit to the long-delayed Olkiluoto 3 nuclear reactor, allowing it to start up production in 2020, the country’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment said on Thursday. The ministry’s permit is a key milestone for Olkiluoto 3, a much-delayed 1.6 gigawatt reactor that net power-importer Finland expects will feed its growing industry with energy and reduce its electricity dependency from Russia and Sweden.
