Largest remaining nuclear plant at Barsebäck to close

The last remaining reactor in operation at Barsebäck 2, one of Sweden«s largest remaining nuclear plants, is to be closed down next year, following a cross-party political agreement. No date has been set for dismantling of the 600 MW plant,which has long been a subject of controversy. Sweden's stated aim is to close all its nuclear plant, with an intention for the country's entire electricity supply to come from renewables. The closure of Barsebäck 2 is regarded as more of a psychological step in the right direction, rather than an immediate boost for the fortunes of the wind market.
