Vattenfall makes major investment in Luleå

Vattenfall obtains new office premises on Porsön in Luleå. The decision means continued investment in Luleå as the principal location for around 300 employees over the next 15 years.

Vattenfall's Board of Directors has decided to enter into final negotiations over a new office in Luleå Science Park. In so doing, Vattenfall is investing in Luleå for the next 15 years.

"With this new investment, Vattenfall will be close to prospective employees, world-class research at the university and, of course, some of our key customers. It will give us a good platform to develop both our existing business and new business areas in the future," says Christer Ljunggren, Head of Vattenfall Vattenkraft.

Vattenfall's office in Luleå accommodates the majority of Vattenfall's business units, including Hydro, Distribution, Wind, Heat, Services and Sales.

"For Luleå, access to electricity is key to our industry and the new data centres that are springing up. Vattenfall is a major player in this context for Luleå itself and the province of Norrbotten in general. Vattenfall's new office is part of the ongoing creation of an energy cluster linked to Luleå University of Technology and Luleå Science Park," says councillor Yvonne Ståhlnacke.

The new office will have a contemporary interior with an open-plan design.
Vattenfall is currently negotiating with a number of property companies and contracts will be signed in October 2014.
