Fortum with Uniper sign a deal on a dismantling project

26 June 2020

Fortum and Uniper Sweden have signed an agreement on a dismantling project at Oskarshamn and Barsebäck nuclear power plants in Sweden. Fortum was awarded the agreement in a competitive bidding process. 

Uniper is performing large scale decommissioning of four nuclear units in one common programme. The now awarded dismantling project includes dismantling of the turbine auxiliary systems, feed water systems, and moisture separator reheaters. The work will be carried out at two power plants and altogether four units in Sweden: Oskarshamn units 1 and 2, and Barsebäck units 1 and 2. The duration of the agreement is about one year, and the work is estimated to be completed in the summer of 2021.

Nuclear decommissioning is a growing business and Fortum has now been awarded contracts both in Sweden and Finland.
