Sweco commissioned by Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company to participate in planning and designing of encapsulation plant Clink
Sweco has been commissioned as the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) begins systems engineering and safety analysis reporting for the planned encapsulation plant Clink in Oskarshamn.
SKB is currently undergoing authorising according to the Act on Nuclear Activities and Swedish Environmental Code for KBS-3, the Swedish system for disposal of nuclear waste. A part of the application concerns the construction of Clink, an integrated facility for interim storage and encapsulation of spent nuclear fuel in Oskarshamn, consisting of the current facility Clab and a new facility for encapsulation of spent nuclear fuel.
“Sweco will contribute with expertise and commitment in a broad range of disciplines and we are glad to support SKB in this project,” says Tomas Carlsson, President and CEO of Sweco.
Sweco’s project for SKB includes finalising the plant’s plan, design and technical building services and its safety, control and power supply systems. Sweco will also create system-level requirements and solutions, a preliminary safety report, budget calculations, procurement documentation for suppliers and contractors, and detailed design.
The project will begin immediately and will continue through mid-2020. In this project Sweco will contribute with expertise in several disciplines, including energy, environment, architecture and structural engineering. The contract value for Sweco might surpass SEK 200 million provided that SKB obtains all necessary authorisations.
