ÅF-Kontroll has been chosen to develop equipment and technology for
non-destructive testing of reactor pressure vessels and the thereto
connecting pipe sockets at Ringhals 2, 3 and 4. The contract also
includes the carrying out of testing up until the end of 2012."This is Ringhals' largest ever procurement of reactor vessel
testing. ÅF-Kontroll was selected after thorough evaluation of,
amongst other things, the proposed testing technologies,
resources/expertise and the ability to deliver," comments Björn
Sjöström, head of the technology department at Ringhals."We are both proud and pleased by the confidence Ringhals has shown
in us. This is one of the most prestigious and interesting testing
assignments available in Swedish nuclear power. It has further
strengthened our position on the Swedish market and we are well
equipped for the job. We will continue to build up our resources and
offer our services both inside and outside Sweden," states Jörgen
Backersgård, President of ÅF-Kontroll AB.

Ringhals generates one fifth of all the electricity used in Sweden.
The plant has four reactors and is located on the west coast in the
municipality of Varberg around sixty kilometres south of Gothenburg.
