Nordic nuclear power output Tuesday 10,277 MW (84%)
(Montel) Nordic nuclear power production is running at 10,277 MW on Tuesday, unchanged from Monday morning, with reactors using 84% of installed generation capacity (12,224 MW).
Operator OKG will reduce output at Oskarshamn 3 to around 200 MW on Thursday due to a scram test, it said on Monday. Power will reach normal output at 1,400 MW after about 25 hours, it added.
Fortum is planning to restart Loviisa 2 on Wednesday after taking the unit offline on Saturday to repair a gasket leak in the main feedwater pump.
The operator has started a four-week long test period at Forsmark 2 to finalise an upgrade to 1,110 MW. During this period it will reduce output to 30% on 6 November, and to zero on 8 November, it said.
OKG has delayed the restart of Oskarshamn 1 after annual maintenance until 12 November, it said last week. The reactor has been officially offline for annual maintenance since 23 April, but has not generated power since 30 October last year when it was shut down due to “irregular vibrations”.
Ringhals 2 in Sweden is offline for annual maintenance.
Output at Oskarshamn 2 is limited to 560 MW due to a problem with turbine blades, a situation the operator expects will last until after annual maintenance next year.
