ÅF has, via its Inspection Division (ÅF-Kontroll), established a new,
wholly owned subsidiary in Lithuania (UAB AF Inspection LT).

Initially operations will concentrate on testing and inspection
services for the nuclear power industry. The new company is starting
business with a staff of 30 qualified test and inspection engineers,
all of whom have been transferred to ÅF as part of an agreement with
the state-owned Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP).

The ÅF Inspection Division has acquired test equipment from INPP
following a public auction. At the same time, the new company is
assured of a significant amount of business thanks to a running
service contract that has been signed with INPP and that relates to
the supply of inspection and testing services for the plant."We have secured access to highly qualified engineers with a solid
track record of expertise in the nuclear power sector. Building on
this new Lithuanian company as our base will give us a unique
position and the opportunity to offer advanced testing services to
more nuclear power nations in the region. There is a great need for
these services and interest among clients is intense," says Jörgen
Backersgård, President of ÅF's Inspection Division.

ÅF-Kontroll will soon also be able to offer inspection services to
other sectors in Lithuania, as it expands its portfolio of services
in the country to include a number of related functions.
