Sweden speeds up closure of two nuclear reactors

Ringhals power station's two nuclear reactors will close down up to seven years earlier than previously plannedSweden’s state-owned energy group Vattenfall on Tuesday said it planned to speed up the shutdown of two nuclear reactors by up to seven years, to 2018 and 2020. Vattenfall said reactors 1 and 2 at the Ringhals plant in southwestern Sweden were too costly to keep in production until 2015 as previously planned. “Ringhals 1 and 2 may be closed down between the years 2018 and 2020 instead of, as previously announced, around 2025,” Vattenfall said in a statement. Sweden has 10 reactors at three nuclear power plants across the country, which generated 39 percent of the electricity used in the country in 2013.
