More Reactors Offline

Two of Sweden’s 10 nuclear reactors were offline Tuesday, in another blow to the country’s nuclear industry.

According to the Ringhals power station, the stop in one reactor was to adjust instruments after anomalous readings. The other reactor has been closed since Monday after a problem in the cooling system.

The move came the same day it was revealed the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate has filed police complaints against another nuclear station for safety violations. A leaked internal report criticised the operators of the Forsmark station, north of Stockholm, in connection with a power outage in July.

One of the Ringhals reactors is expected to return to service on Friday.
