Forsmark 2 Re-opens

The second of two nuclear reactors that were closed in July at the Forsmark nuclear power station has re-opened.

The two reactors at the station on the Baltic coast north of Stockholm were shut down over safety concerns. A short-circuit caused a blackout, with two of the four back-up generators failing, revealing other faults in the electrical system.

The Forsmark 1 reactor was re-started October 14th.
