Sweden - "it had delayed the restart of the Ringhals 4 nuclear reactor by two months to 31th Jan"

Swedish utility Vattenfall said on Tuesday it had delayed the restart of the Ringhals 4 nuclear reactor by two months to Jan. 31, in a further setback to power supply in the Nordic and Baltic region.

"The unforeseen required repairs are taking more time than expected, before starting up the unit after the yearly maintenance," Qazet.az reports according to Vattenfall its' in a regulatory filing.

The extended outage comes at a critical time as energy prices soar across Europe and countries scramble to ensure there is enough power output for the coming winter.
