ÅF has signed a contract, together with Tyréns AB, with the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company, SKB, relating to the systems project management of the storage of spent nuclear fuel at Forsmark. At the end of 2011 ÅF and Tyréns announced their involvement in a preliminary study prior to systems project management (SEK 6 million). The new contract is estimated to be worth approximately SEK 75 million, at least half of which is expected to accrue to ÅF. The assignment will be carried out during 2012 and 2013.
Systems project management involves producing drawings, models, specifications and system solutions ahead of the planned starting date for the construction of the nuclear fuel storage facility in 2017.
Most of the work will be carried out by ÅF in Stockholm and will call upon resources and expertise from various ÅF divisions. Project management activities will be conducted in close liaison with SKB on site at Forsmark.
ÅF has won this order thanks both to a strong portfolio of references from major infrastructure and industrial projects and to the company's world-class expertise in the nuclear power industry.
