Experts say nuclear power plant problems resolved
On Saturday, Swedish atomic experts declared an end to emergency proceedings prompted by a nuclear reactor blackout.
Sweden said on Friday that it would not close down any more nuclear power stations after problems forced a halt to operations at four of this country’s ten reactors, in connection with a potentially dangerous failure caused by an electricity blackout at a plant last week. A spokesman for the nuclear energy supervisory board said the emergency had passed but the nuclear plants themselves have to do a lot of work, and given the amount of money involved, they are pretty much working around the clock to resolve the issues. Nuclear power accounts for nearly half of Sweden’s electricity production.
