Template:Infobox NPP The Loviisa Nuclear Power Station is located close to the Finnish city Loviisa and houses two PWR reactors. They are of the Soviet/Russian type VVER-440/213 with a capacity of 488 MW each that started electricity production in 1977 and 1980. In order to comply with newly developed Finnish regulations, Westinghouse supplied the instrumentation and Siemens supplied the sleeves. Due to this unorthodox approach of supplying some things from US companies and the rest from Atomenergoeksport, a Soviet at the time, the plant got the nickname of "Eastinghouse". The plant is operated by Fortum Oyj.
