VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (established 1942) is the leading multidisciplinary research, development and innovation company in Northern Europe. VTT has a solid track record in supporting nuclear power plants as well as regulators internationally. VTT is well networked, e.g. a founding member of NUGENIA.
VTT has unique experimental and computational infrastructure, and profound expertise in a wide variety of technologies as well as cognitive sciences. The topics of VTT’s nuclear services include plant lifetime and cost optimization, structural safety and integrity, material characterization and testing, risk-informed inspection, NDE methods, safety analysis and licensing support, digital I&C, control rooms and human factors, and organization safety culture. Our new hot cell facilities were commissioned in 2017.
VTT has been instrumental in supporting radioactive waste management solutions in Finland for many decades, including implementation of the world’s first high level radioactive waste repository to be granted a construction license. VTT has operated Finland’s FiR1 research reactor, which stopped operation in 2015 and is in the process of decommissioning. VTT has developed our own technologies to aid in safe and efficient decommissioning and waste management practices.
One of VTT‘s key strengths is the capability of combining expertise within the organization. We welcome discussions with us also on such diverse topics, e.g. wireless technologies, cyber security or virtual and augmented reality.
