On-going beat continues in Finland. How can you have delays that aren't delays?

TVO: Welding problems will not cause further delays to completion of Olkiluoto III - Helsingin Sanomat

"STUK orders welding works to be suspended during ongoing investigation. STUK immediately demanded that Areva provide detailed plans on how to assess the cause of the faults, and how to proceed with the necessary further inspections.

'We figured such measures should suffice', says STUK section head Martti Vilpas. The second weld was flawless, but in the third weld completed at the beginning of May faults were again discovered. According to Vilpas, the faults are almost identical to those in the first weld. 'Things cannot continue like this', Vilpas emphasises."

Chances Dim for Nuclear Plant - Houston Chronicle - 15 May 09

"Plans for a new nuclear power plant in Victoria are likely to be scrapped because the project isn’t expected to obtain necessary government-backed loans to help finance the facility, the CEO of the company proposing the plant said Friday.

Exelon Corp. CEO John Rowe said the Victoria plant would be canceled without the loan guarantees he called essential to putting the two-reactor operation online. 'We’ve been very clear we can’t do it without the guarantees,' Rowe told reporters after a speech at the National Press Club."
