Resumed Operation at Unit Oskarshamn 1

Pressrelease Monday, February 29, 2016

The operation at unit O1 was resumed on Sunday 28 February after nearly four days of downtime.

The unit was taken offline on Wednesday 24 February due to a scheduled shutdown. The reason for the shutdown was steam and water leakage in the conventional turbine equipment. The sealing causing the leak has been replaced and since the work went better than expected, it was possible to restart unit O1 on Sunday morning, nearly two days earlier than initially anticipated.

Slow power ascent is currently in progress and the aim is to have trouble-free electricity deliveries until the annual outage, scheduled to start on 28 March.
