Forsmark nuclear power plant
Forsmark nuclear power plant is one of the largest power plants in Sweden.
We are situated on the east coast, in the region of Uppland. Forsmark has three boiling water reactors that generate 20-25 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in a normal year. This is approximately one sixth of Sweden's total electrical energy consumption.
