Resumed Electricity Deliveries at Unit Oskarshamn 3 and Maintenance Work in Progress at Unit Oskarshamn 1
Pressrelease Monday, June 22, 2015
The electricity deliveries from unit Oskarshamn 3 (O3) to the Swedish grid were resumed on 20 June, after disturbances that occurred during the power ascent following the annual outage. Unit Oskarshamn 1 (O1) was taken off the grid on Sunday 21 June for a scheduled shut down for maintenance work.
The electricity deliveries from the largest boiling water reactor in the world have now been resumed after one week of disturbances that occurred during the power ascent following the annual outage.
– The intense activities with measures being performed in the facility have been very successful, says Johan Dasht, production manager O3. By the help of qualified and committed employees, who have put a great deal of effort into the work, the unit can again contribute with its 1,400 MW to the Swedish electricity supply.
This past weekend, a scheduled operational interruption commenced at unit O1 in which maintenance will be performed for a number of components. The work concerns measures that cannot be performed when the facility is in operation, which is why the unit was taken off the grid on Sunday afternoon. Unit O1 is scheduled to resume the operation later this week, according to a notification to the electricity market.
The safety modernisation in progress at unit Oskarshamn 2 (O2) is at the same time in an intense phase involving commissioning of a number of systems and components, and the unit is scheduled for restart on 20 December.
