Sweden: Nuclear power plant staff happy

The new agreement in the coalition government to open up for more nuclear power in Sweden is good news for the power plant staff.

One of the plants is in Forsmark, a small village on the coast only 150 km north of Stockholm.

One of the emplyees, Linda Bergman is happy:

- I think the new agreement is good. It provides us with at least some belief in the future and it is good also to show that all kind of energy sources are needed, she says to Swedish Public television SVT.

Also Lennart Hallin, who is working there is positive:

- It is really nice to hear. We see this as a sign that there is a future for all people who work here and that we can still get educated people to move here from different parts of Sweden. This is good, Hallin says to SVT.

It has been discussed before to add a new reactor to the nuclear plant. This is probably not probable even after the new agreement.

The spokesman for Forsmark, Claes-Inge Andersson, says to SVT that if new reactors are to be built, it will have to belong to the new generation. Therefore it is not probable that it will be placed there.

The existing reactors in Forsmark´s power plant has around 20 years left.

One nuclear plant in an area, and several thousand people can live their whole lives at in secure very high standard of living.

To s how the math, if they paid all 400 workers at a plant 200,000 USD a year, the cost would be 80 million a year. Not that much comapred to the 5 billion dollar cost of say an EPR.

Of course they don't pay quite that well, but they spend on other things like often 20 million a year to the local government in property taxes.
