Multi-billion project to start soon

First of SKB’s major construction projects gets underway

In the autumn of 2024, SKB plans to fire the first blasting salvo in the work to extend the Final Repository for Short-lived Radioactive Waste (SFR) in Forsmark. The repository will become almost three times bigger, to receive decommissioning waste from decommissioned Swedish nuclear power plants. But there's a lot to be done before then. The extension project will take about six years to complete.

SKB's sustainability plan

Sustainability - more than just a pretty word

Roadmap for Sustainable Construction and Operation is the name of SKB's sustainability programme and with this plan the direction for the company's sustainability work is set out for many years to come.

Final repository for spent nuclear fuel

On March 16th 2011, after three decades of carrying out research, developing technology and conducting surveys, SKB applied to the authorities for permission to build a repository for spent nuclear fuel in Forsmark and an encapsulation plant in Oskarshamn. It basically concerns the final solution for the spent fuel from Swedish nuclear power plants.
