ÅF has, together with Tyréns AB, signed a contract with the Swedish Nuclear Fuel
and Waste Management Company, SKB, relating to preliminary studies prior to
systematic project management of the storage of spent nuclear fuel at the
Forsmark nuclear power plant.

The initial order is worth approximately SEK 6 million. It is estimated that at
least half of this sum will accrue to ÅF. In all likelihood, this will be
followed by the signing of a more extensive contract for systematic project
management of the storage of the nuclear fuel. This project, which will run
during 2012 and 2013, is estimated to be worth approximately SEK 75 million.

Most of the work will be carried out from ÅF in Stockholm and will involve
resources and expertise from a number of ÅF divisions. The preliminary
investigations will be undertaken in close liaison with SKB on site at

ÅF has won the 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.
