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.
