I am not a scientist but I do know that discharging warm water into the sea can cause enviromental problems.

Sellafield nuclear processing plant does this and enviromentalists say this "The discharge of large volumes of warm water in to the Duddon Estuary would inevitably have ecological effects, possibly including the creation of conditions favourable to invasive species not native to the Cumbrian coast" http://www.savekirksanton.org.uk/sites/default/files/document/cumbria%20wildlife%20trust%20response%20to%20ecc%20consultation%20on%20nps.pdf

I presume the volume of water in Sweden, however, is minimal compared to Cumbria.
