Nuclear Inspectors Complete Safety Review At Forsmark

The International Atom Energy Agency, IAEA has completed its three week long safety review of Sweden’s Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant.

The IAEA was called in to inspect the plant on Sweden’s eastern coast after a series of incidents at the plant nearly two years ago which raised serious safety concerns.

In July 2006, the Forsmark 1 reactor had to be shutdown after two of four back up generators which supply power to the reactor’s cooling system, malfunctioned, raising fears of a reactor meltdown.

A damning report into safety standards at Forsmark was later published.

Although the IAEA inspectors have completed their work, a report into their findings won’t be published until the autumn.
