Barsebäck safety investment to continue

3 June 2002

A major safety investment programme at Barsebäck 2 will continue as planned, despite political moves to limit the reactor's operating life.

The programme includes the replacement of primary systems. More than $10 million will be spent annually over the next three years on the programme, which will include emptying the reactor vessel of water for the first time since operations began in 1977. Barsebäck plant manager Leif Ost is confident that the reactor "would remain productive for many years."
