Obstacles to new nuclear in Sweden cleared

Sweden’s parliament, the Riksdag, has approved legislative amendments from Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson’s government that will remove the country’s prohibition on new reactor construction at sites other than Sweden’s three current nuclear plants—Forsmark, Ringhals, and Oskarshamn—and do away with the limitation on the number of simultaneously operating reactors, currently capped at 10.
The amendments enter force on January 1.
“The Riksdag shares the government’s assessment that fossil-free electricity from nuclear power will also continue to play a role of central importance in the Swedish energy mix,” the legislative body said in a statement following the November 29 vote. “The main reasons for this are an expected greater demand for electricity in combination with the fact that fossil fuels have to be phased out, particularly for climate reasons. Nuclear power also contributes to the stable and predictable functioning of the Swedish power system.”
17th International ANS Conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Analysis 2021 (PSA21)
Since 1978, the ANS biennial topical conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment has been a forum for communication of major probabilistic risk and safety topics worldwide, including issues, methods, applications, insights, policy, research, and risk-informed regulation experience. PSA21 will be of interest to those working in traditional applications including nuclear reactor facilities, nonreactor installations, processing, decontamination & decommissioning, storage, as well as other nontraditional areas where probabilistic safety approaches are applied. Topics of discussion are anticipated to include advanced and small modular reactor (SMR), Fukushima Daiichi, advanced reactor, multi-unit and full site PSA, the human interface and HRA, reliability of systems/structures/components, waste cleanup, natural phenomena, security, dry storage and fire risk, as well as many others. The role of probabilistic methods in understanding uncertainties and improving the safety and security of nuclear facilities, and activities will be highlighted.
PSA 2021 is attended by decision-makers, regulators, project managers, business sector, scientists, engineers, students and educators from throughout the world who are engaged in one or more topical areas associated with PSA. By selecting this conference, you will have the opportunity to network with leaders in the probabilistic and nuclear safety assessment field, as well as discuss your products, services, and organization.
