Swedish nuclear fuel and waste management company SKB is planning to complete the licensing process for a used nuclear fuel repository at Forsmark and to begin construction in 2019, according to the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM). By then, SKB plans to have the review of its licence application completed by the SSM and the land and environmental court, as well as to obtain a decision by the Swedish government and to complete the preliminary safety analysis report. Construction and commissioning of the repository could then be completed by 2028, when trial operations would begin. Commercial operation is scheduled for 2030.
