The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) has submitted a 147-page report to the government regarding the planned dismantling of units 1 and 2 at OKG’s Oskarshamn NPP. The report is required under the 1957 Euratom Treaty, which governs the EU’s nuclear industry. The Swedish government will forward the report to the European Commission. The report says dismantling the two units will not have “more than a negligible impact” on the environment in any EU member state. There are three boiling water reactors at Oskarshamn. Unit 1 began commercial operation in 1972 and unit 2 in 1975. Oskarshamn 3, the largest unit, began commercial operation in 1985 and is scheduled to continue until 2045. In October 2015, OKG’s shareholders voted to close Oskarshamn 1 and 2 citing concerns about their economic viability. Unit 2 has been shut down since 2013 and will not be restarted, and unit 1 is to close this year.

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) has lifted its special supervision regime on OKG, the operator of the Oskarshamn NPP, according to a 1 July statement. The three-unit plant has been operating under special supervision since December 2012, after SSM decided that actions taken by OKG to address weaknesses related to five areas of safety culture identified in 2011 had been insufficient.
