ALSTOM Power Sweden AB has signed a five-year service agreement with OKG AB covering the turbine systems at the Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant. The agreement covers annual maintenance, including inspection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators and associated auxiliary systems for Oskarshamn 1, 3 and to some extent 2, during ordinary maintenance outages.
Alstom will also provide a local on-site service team at the Oskarshamn plant, tasked with supporting OKG's personnel with component maintenance during operating periods.
"This agreement represents an important step for OKG as part of our long-term strategy to ensure competence and the further development of our work processes. We’re looking forward to working closely with Alstom to manage and carry out future service and maintenance tasks on the turbine systems with a focus on safe production, high availability and low production costs for our plants,” said OKG AB's CEO Johan Svenningsson.
At Alstom, the service agreement will be managed from Alstom's offices in Norrköping and Västerås.
"Service agreements such as this are win-win arrangements for Alstom and our nuclear power customers. Tailored to each customer’s specific needs and strategy, they provide an excellent opportunity to strengthen our relationships and, in particular, to maintain and deepen our expertise relating to nuclear power in the country,” says Mats Andersson, CEO of Alstom Power Sweden AB.
