Coor Service Management wins major assignment in nuclear power industry

Coor Service Management has signed an agreement with Ringhals AB Vattenfall for service in connection with the Ringhals nuclear power plant in southern Sweden. The agreement entails Coor managing, coordinating and delivering services worth just over SEK 150 million a year.

In stiff competition, Coor Service Management has won the order to provide service for Vattenfall's Ringhals nuclear power plant in Halland province, southern Sweden. Coor will be responsible for around 50 different production-related services (including sanitation and decontamination, technical insulation, fire protection and handling of sensitive waste), property-related service (such as waste management, building service and management of outdoor environments) and workplace service (including cleaning, conference-related services and project administration).

"We are proud of this extended confidence to expand and primarily develop our service delivery to Ringhals. Our remit is to develop a new service concept in close collaboration with the client, with the aim of defining long-term goals and improving Ringhals's potential to regulate and adapt its service requirement easily as the operation's demands change, with meticulous monitoring of cost development. The order represents an opportunity for us to continue expanding in the nuclear power industry," says Jan Bjerler, head of the Nuclear & Industrial business unit at Coor Service Management.

The agreement begins with preliminary alignment in 2007 and runs until 31 December 2013. The assignment will be carried out by Coors' existing staff at Ringhals in combination with subcontractors.
