OSLO — Damage has been detected in the feedwater pumps of Finland’s Olkiluoto 3 (OL3) nuclear reactor during maintenance work, which will likely delay the commissioning of the plant and the startup of regular production, operator TVO said on Tuesday.

“The damage detected at the pumps has no impact on nuclear safety,” the company said on its website. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik; Editing by Mark Porter)
