Sweden’s Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) approved the safety report for dismantling and demolition of the Barsebäck-1 and -2 nuclear plants about 30 km from Malmö in southern Sweden.

The Barsebäck station has two ABB-designed 600-MW boiling water reactor units. Barsebäck-1 was permanently shut down in November 1999 and Barsebäck-2 in May 2005.

Sweden’s government decided in 1997 that both units should be closed. Operator Barsebäck Kraft AB appealed and the closures were delayed.

In a separate move, more than 300 people lodged unsuccessful appeals to the supreme administrative court against the decision to close Barsebäck-2, including officials from the local municipality who claimed the closure violated Swedish environmental and industrial laws and EU legislation.
