• Conference to Identify Potential Supply Chain Partners for OL4 Nuclear Project;
• GEH will Host Interns at its Global Headquarters this Summer.

GEH and Fluor are seeking to establish a Finnish supply chain for OL4 as well as for other potential projects around the world. FinNuclear, an association comprised of Finnish companies with nuclear expertise, partnered with GEH and Fluor to put on today’s event. On May 25, FinNuclear will take GEH and Fluor on a tour of the region surrounding the OL4 site. The group will meet with officials from Rauma, Pori and Eurajoki to learn about each town, the services they offer and the potential collaboration that can be expected in connection with the new plant project.

GEH is further investing in the future of the Finnish global supply chain by announcing today that it will host five Finnish interns from the
country’s top universities this summer at its global headquarters in the United States.

GEH’s Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (ESBWR), the world’s safest available reactor design based on industry standards, has been selected to enter the bidding process for the OL4 project and GEH has been working with Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) on an ESBWR licensing feasibility study since February of this year. GEH partnered with Fluor to jointly prepare the upcoming bid and has continued to expand its local business presence in Finland. Earlier this year, GEH signed a memorandum of understanding with Space Systems Finland, Ltd., which specializes in the validation and verification of safety critical software for various industrial sectors, including the aerospace and utility industries.

“FinNuclear has begun to develop the preparedness of the Finnish nuclear supply chain not only for nuclear projects in Finland but to potentially springboard into global nuclear markets, where collaboration could continue with major players like GEH and Fluor,” said Leena Jylhä, director of FinNuclear Association. “Supplier conferences initiate the dialogue between the NPP vendors and Finnish companies.”

“With four nuclear plants currently in operation and another one under construction, Finland is well positioned to capitalize on its experience building these massive projects both at home and globally,” said David Sledzik, vice president for international nuclear plant projects at GEH. “Today’s suppliers conference solidified GEH’s belief that Finnish nuclear companies have a lot to offer and we look forward to mobilizing this supply chain in order to prepare an extremely competitive, attractive and comprehensive proposal to support TVO’s technology, schedule and budget requirements.”

“One of the key features of a successful project is optimizing our suppliers and subcontractors," said David Boone, director of Fluor's nuclear operations business. "Fluor is pleased with the level of interest in the GEH/Fluor Supplier Day, and we look forward to leveraging the talent, experience and products from the Finnish supply chain for our project and our team."

Earlier this year, CEO of GE Energy John Krenicki unveiled an ESBWR model at the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki, highlighting the role that GEH’s nuclear reactor technology can play in helping Finland expand the production of lower-carbon, alternative energy supplies.

Finland has four nuclear reactors that supplied more than 28 percent of the country’s electricity in 2010, according to the World Nuclear Association. In July 2010, Finland’s parliament ratified "Decisions in Principle" for the construction of two additional reactors, including TVO’s “Olkiluoto-4” project.
