In its capacity as a leading technical consultant, ÅF has been working closely with the Vattenfall energy group for a number of years. Now, when Vattenfall is looking for strategic partners in the fields of nuclear power, hydropower and windpower, an expansion of its collaboration with ÅF is the obvious course of action.
ÅF has signed a four-year contract as an 'A' supplier to Vattenfall that runs from 2011 to the end of 2014.
The agreement relates to the provision of technical consulting services in everything from project management, analysis and investigations to technical calculations and mechanical construction and design in all areas of technology. The decisive factors behind the choice of ÅF as a strategic partner were ÅF's track record of capacity and proven in-depth expertise across a broad spectrum of technical disciplines, together with the company's eagerness to develop and build upon its existing partnership with Vattenfall.
Even before this contract was signed, Vattenfall was already one of the ÅF Group's major clients. Now, as a result of the new agreement, business with Vattenfall is expected to expand significantly. One effect of this is that ÅF intends to step up its recruitment of personnel with experience from the energy sector to meet the increased demand from Vattenfall.

We offer highly qualified services and solutions for industrial processes, infrastructure projects and the development of products and IT systems. Today ÅF has approximately 4,500 employees.
