O3 delivers electricity following a successful maintenance outage

Pressrelease Wednesday, June 29, 2016

On 28 June, Oskarshamn 3 (O3), one of the largest boiling water reactors in the world, could resume delivering climate-efficient and safe baseload power for the Swedish industry and homes after a successful maintenance outage.

The brief maintenance outage, planned to last 25 days, had an extensive list of planned measures in the plant for both safety- and operation-related systems. Despite the large number of activities and additional fault reports, the plant could be synchronised with the Swedish power grid on 28 June, only five days later than planned.

– There has been very much work to do in the past weeks, says Per Magnusson, Acting Production Manager, O3. But with competent co-workers who work efficiently and on a high level of quality, work is joy. A big thank you to all of you who made it possible for O3 to continue delivering its 1,400 MW to the Swedish power grid!

Oskarshamn 1 (O1) operates smoothly and production is at maximum power. A periodic valve test is planned for 6 July which will decrease the power to around 330 MW. Maximum power is 492 MW.
