Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To the best of my knowledge the Finnish EPR Olkiluoto3 project dates to 1997. If a cornerstone was laid in 2005 that's fine with me.

It's interesting to note that Finland's European Pressurized Reactor is a joint French-German project (Framatone-Siemens) with the participation of some 26 nations. The water-cooling system is Italian. Some 60 companies, mostly foreign, are lined up to buy the energy produced.

So despite local political choices, Europe has certainly not abandoned nuclear power. In fact the Council of Economic Cooperation which unites some 100 companies of the "Latin" members of the UE strongly reccomends it.
