Sweden's Ringhals Nuclear Power Plant Reactor 2 Shut Down 9 Hours After the Restart, Cause Unknown

From Reuters (7/19/2012):

Sweden's Ringhals-2 nuclear reactor fails after restart

OSLO, July 19 | Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:45am EDT

(Reuters) - Sweden's Ringhals-2 nuclear reactor was shut down on Thursday morning, less than nine hours after being restarted, due to a technical glitch, the Nordic power exchange said in a market message.

The 865-megawatt (MW) pressurized water reactor's trip was caused by an elevated high-steam generator level after it was restarted at 1930 GMT on Wednesday, it added.

The reactor was previously shut a month ago due to oil leakage from a transformer, and was expected to be back in full operation after maintenance by Thursday evening.

Ringhals-2 is one of the four reactors at the plant south of Gothenburg, 70 percent owned by Swedish state energy group Vattenfall and 30 percent held by German E.ON .

Nuclear generators supply 40 percent of Sweden's power needs.

I wonder whose steam generator is used.

OT: Details of Hashimoto's sex scandal to be released soon. "Slightly sadistic" mentioned by Japan Times article. Such a man does not belong in public office. Japanese people need to get more active in running their government. If you're Japanese and not a sociopath, PLEASE run for public office. Any weaknesses or lack of experience are more than compensated by your not being a sociopath!

anon716 - Japan deserves leaders with integrity. Hashimoto's past casts serious doubt on whether he has such integrity. At least as bad or maybe worse than Hosono.
