Nuclear power station. Oskarshamn 3 nuclear power station. This station uses a boiling water reactor (BWR). A BWR is a design in which water is used as both the coolant and the moderator. The moderator slows down the neutrons emitted by nuclear fission, in order to sustain a chain reaction. The water boils in the reactor core and the resulting steam is used to drive a turbine, generating electricity. The output of this reactor is 1180 megawatts. It is one of three reactors at the Oskarshamn site. Photographed in Sweden.
