Sweden restarts nuclear reactors

STOCKHOLM (AFP) – Two of three Swedish nuclear reactors shut down this month following minor incidents were restarted this week, the Nuclear Power Inspectorate (SKI) said on Friday.

“Ringhals 2 and Forsmark 2 were restarted this week,” SKI spokesman Anders Joerle told AFP.

The Ringhals 2 reactor, on the west coast south of Gothenburg, was stopped on February 16 due to a “small leak” in its primary cooling system.

The Forsmark 1 and 2 reactors, north of Stockholm on the east coast, were halted on February 3 after a fault was found in rubber panels in the Forsmark 1 reactor’s housing.
