Forsmark nuclear power station

Reactor Restart Delayed by New Fault

The planned restart of a Swedish nuclear reactor has been delayed after a new fault was discovered.

The reactor at the Forsmark power station, north of Stockholm, was closed down in July after two back-up generators failed during a power failure. It was scheduled to go online again on Saturday, but a surveillance system failed during the start-up.

The second reactor at Forsmark was successfully brought back online Friday.
