Proposals would remove limits on reactor construction New legislation being put forward by Sweden’s centre-right coalition government removes obstacles to the potential construction of small modular reactors and will help the country in “reaching a climate neutral society with high robustness”, the secretary-general of the Swedish Atomic Forum said.

Carl Berglöf said on social media that the legislation will remove from existing law the maximum limit of 10 reactors. It will also remove a clause that says new reactors can only be built at existing site. “This proposal paves the way for SMRs in Sweden,” he said.

Mr Berglöf said that specifically, the government wants to remove article 6a of chapter 17 (“article 17.6a”) in the country’s environmental act. This article prohibits the government from giving permit to a reactor that is not replacing an existing reactor that has been permanently shut down.
