ÅF-TÜV Nord AB, in which ÅF-Kontroll owns a 50% share, has been appointed by OKG to serve as notified body to inspect the mechanical equipment at OKG's three nuclear reactor units in Oskarshamn on the Swedish south-east coast.
The assignment will run over a period of several years and is expected to comprise approximately 11,000 working hours per year.
As a result of this undertaking, ÅF-TÜV Nord AB will establish a local office under the same roof as ÅF's existing operations in Oskarshamn. Measures have already been taken to recruit more personnel with the requisite skills.
For several years now ÅF-TÜV Nord has also been performing the corresponding services for the nuclear power plant at Ringhals on Sweden's west coast.
ÅF-TÜV Nord AB, jointly owned by the German TÜV NORD Group and ÅF-Kontroll AB, carries out third-party inspections of nuclear power facilities.
