Ring neck not yet in full effect


The Ringhals 3 nuclear reactor cannot yet be operated at full power. A pipe leak is remedied at the same time as the reactor is restarted.

After the restart, a pipe leak now means that only one of two turbines is in operation, reports P4 Halland. The owner Vattenfall states on its website that measures are carried out on a smaller pipe on the turbine side in parallel with start-up work in progress.

On Monday morning, the reactor had reached 50 percent of its production capacity, ie 529 MW. The reactor is expected to reach full power during the night until Tuesday.

Ringhals 3 was quickly stopped on Wednesday. The reason is still unclear, but according to Vattenfall, an automatic safety system stepped in and stopped production.

The troubleshooting was extensive and the restart was moved forward several times. On January 1, Charlotta Eldelind, communications manager at Ringhals, told TT that there was no increased risk of further stoppages.

– We have made a careful survey of the course of events and based on that, the assessment was that we are ready to restart again. Now the capacity is gradually increasing, she said then.
