Nuclear reactor will open late

A nuclear reactor that had been down at the Oskarshamn plant was not able to start again on Wednesday, as had been planned, and it is now expected to be back online on Thursday evening, reports news agency TT.

On Sunday, the reactor had been shut down because of a problem with the water system, but in the meantime, another fault was detected - a problem with the turbine's vent - and that delayed the plan to get the reactor up and running again.

The plant at Oskarshamn has three reactors, one of which is shut for renovation.
