First dismantling project in reactor O2 approved

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority, SSM, has issued its approval of OKG Aktiebolag's (OKG) revised safety analysis report (SAR) on segmentation of the reactor internals and fuel boxes at the reactor Oskarshamn 2 (O2) of the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant. The decision means that OKG can begin dismantling of O2's internal components.

Raising the level of nuclear safety and security internationally

In 2017, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority ran projects in the areas of nuclear safety, security and non-proliferation in Ukraine, the Russian Federation, Belarus, Georgia and Moldova. This programme is a component of the Authority's international work. The projects, part of an assignment from the Swedish Government, have resulted in a reduced level of risk posed to Sweden from a potential release of radioactive materials.
