The Fennovoima nuclear firm’s parent company, Voimaosakeyhtiö SF (VSF), fired one of its executives because he expressed safety concerns to the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK). VSF admitted this to Yle after initially denying it.
About a year ago, the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) carried out an investigation of the safety culture at Fennovoima. The nuclear watchdog found a number of problems, as reported by Yle in mid-August. Prior to the probe, several employees of Fennovoima and affiliated companies had expressed concerns over safety to STUK. Yle has now learned that at least one of those whistleblowers, Nils Merikanto, lost his job as a result.
