Highest court dismisses appeal on Barsebäck closure

2 March 2005

An appeal against the closure of the 600MWe Barsebäck-2 reactor, operated by state-owned Vattenfall, has been dismissed by the nation’s highest court, the Supreme Administrative Court.

Kavlinge, the municipality in the far south of Sweden where the Barsebäck plant is located, had argued that the decision to close the plant had been made in an unlawful manner without seeking the opinion of all concerned, the Supreme Court disagreed. Barsebäck is scheduled for closure at the end of May after a referendum determined to phase out nuclear energy.
