Faulty valve closes Oskarshamn reactor
The Oskarshamn 3 nuclear reactor suffered an unscheduled close-down Sunday morning. The exact problem is unknown, but the Oskarhamns nuclear station’s head of information Anders Östberg tells SVT the fault is in a turbine valve.
It’s unclear how long the O3 outage will last. Currently only one of Oskarhamn’s three reactors is in operation. Reactor O2 is under renovation and will not be brought back online until this Summer.
