Unit Oskarshamn 1 (O1) is in many respects a pioneer plant and represents an epoch in Swedish engineering. It is the first commercial reactor in Sweden, the first reactor in the world in which personnel conducted work in a reactor vessel that had been in operation and the first unit at which a major modernisation project was performed. The year after the decision was made in 2015 to permanently shut down the plant was the third best production year ever for the unit and this past Saturday, on 17 June 2017, unit O1 delivered its final kilowatt hours of electricity.

The number of notices of termination in 2017 has been estimated at 84 employees, instead of 200 individuals initially estimated at the time of the notice of termination given in 2016. All employees concerned by the decision will be informed by the end of May. The Managing Director, Johan Dasht, points out that this is in all respects a process just as a distressing as necessary.

2016 was a year of extremes for OKG. Unit Oskarshamn 3 broke a new production record and for the first time in one and the same calendar year, more than 10 billion kilowatt hours of electricity were delivered to the public. At the same time, adaptation was initiated concerning an organisation involving two out of three reactors being decommissioned. The reduced activities entailed that 500 jobs were cut this past year.
