Two-Thirds of Forsmark Reactors Offline

Two of the three reactors at a nuclear power station north of Stockholm are currently closed down.

The head of communications for the Forsmark plant says it will take several days to fix a leaky valve in the number three reactor. Another reactor at Forsmark is also currently closed for an annual inspection.

In February the International Atomic Energy Agency conducted a safety review of Forsmark after a series of incidents at the plant two years ago which raised serious safety concerns.
