    2016-12-14 | Press release

    Vattenfall secures long-term nuclear fuel supply by signing new commercial contracts with three different suppliers; French Areva, Russian TVEL and American Westinghouse. The value of the contracts amount to approximately SEK 1.2 Billion over the period from 2018 through 2025.

  • The first hybrid electric bus route in the Nordic region with wireless bus stop charging is inaugurated in Södertälje, south of Stockholm. The city bus is charged rapidly and invisibly at Vattenfall’s charging station. The project is a cooperation between Scania, SL, Vattenfall, Södertälje municipality and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) designed to develop silent and sustainable public transport. The project is being partly financed by the Swedish Energy Agency.

  • Vattenfall has acquired the energy sales company Vindstø to enter the Danish consumer market. Vindstø offers 100% wind power to Danish customers.

  • Vattenfall welcomes today’s ruling of the German Constitutional Court. It confirms that the immediate shutdown without compensation of the nuclear power plants operated by Vattenfall was not in compliance with the German law.

  • Vattenfall is selling two German waste to energy power plants Lauta and Rüdersdorf to STEAG.

  • A majority in the Danish Parliament (Folketing) announced today that it will approve Danish Near Shore (DNS)* wind farms. This means that Vattenfall can proceed with plans to develop the 350 MW project off Denmark's west coast.
