Case-study session 2: Nuclear facilities and local information. The way we work with public relations at the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant

Abstract

The Oskarshamn NPP is owned by OKG Aktiebolag, the only private company in Sweden operating NPPs. The site is situated 350 kilometres south of Stockholm, in the community of Oskarshamn with 30 000 inhabitants and in the county of Kalmar with about 250 000 inhabitants. OKG now owns and operates three BWRs of ABB Atom design, with a total net production of 15 TWh/year, i.e. 1 - 12% of the total electricity generation in Sweden. OKG also operates CLAB that is owned by SKB. On the site, SKB has now decided to build a hard-rock laboratory 500 metres down in the bedrock. OKG is the nuclear pioneer of Sweden, the first reactor has been in operation since 1972. Company policy has always been maximum open communication and encouraging the employees to engage themselves into debates about energy and nuclear and into social life as a whole. OKG also sponsors several cultural and sport events in Oskarshamn. The goal is to create confidence between society and the plant. Two different areas of influence are defined: organization of the information department taking care of both external and internal information which is considered an essential part of the work.
