Ringhals nuclear power plant
Ringhals nuclear power plant is one of the largest power plants in Sweden.
We are situated on the west coast of Sweden, 60 kilometres south of Gothenburg. Ringhals has three reactors – two pressurised water reactors and one boiling water reactor – which produce around 23 TWh in a normal year. This is approximately one sixth of Sweden's total electrical energy consumption.
