Long Description:
Barsebäck is a decommissioned boiling water nuclear power plant.

Land for the plant was bought in 1965 by the energy company Sydkraft, and the first of the two BWR reactors was ordered from Asea-Atom in 1969. Commercial operation of unit one began on May 15 1975, and the second reactor July 1 1977.
Reactor one first attained criticality on January 18, 1975 and commercial operation began on May 15. The second reactor attained criticality on March 21, 1977 and commercial operation began on July 1.
Reactor type BWR. Each reactor had a net capacity of 600 megawatts. Unit 1 supplied 93,8 TWh and unit 2 108 TWh to the electrical grid.

The Government of Sweden decided that the first reactor was to close July 1, 1998, and the second July 1, 2001.

Located only 20 kilometers from the Danish capital, Copenhagen, the Danish government pressed for its closure during the entirety of its operating lifetime. Many people participated over the years in demonstrations against the nuclear power plant.
