The nuclear power station in Oskarshamn, southern Sweden has once again been forced to shut down one of its reactors due to problems with the water supply.

It was shut recently due to jellyfish blocking the intake pipes, but this does not seem to be the problem this time, Swedish Radio News reports.

Another reactor at the plant was also forced to reduce the generator level due to a different problem, with its turbines.

According to Swedish Radio News in Kalmar, plant bosses say they are not sure when they will be able to re-start the problematic reactor.
