Prosecutors to investigate nuclear power plant incident

Published fredag 2 februari 2007 kl 17.10
Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant

The Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate suspects rules were broken after technical problems at the Forsmark site, north of Stockholm, in July.

A reactor was taken off-line the day after a short-circuit caused a black-out and back-up generators failed to start automatically, but the Inspectorate says it should have been cooled down more quickly.

A Prosecutor in the nearby town of Uppsala will now look into whether bosses at Forsmark contravened nuclear power laws.

After the incident, which was described as the most serious ever in Sweden, operations were temporarily suspended at three more of the country’s 10 nuclear plants.
