The Swedish company taking care of spent nuclear fuel & waste is running the Port of Forsmark as of 1 April 2023.
The harbour, used for handling Sigrid that transports radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel from the Forsmark power station to deposits in Oskarshamn, was previously operated by Forsmarks Kraftgrupp, a subsidiary of Vattenfall.
"The port is an important link in our activities to take care of and transport radioactive waste. The takeover means that SKB will be responsible for port operations, ship handling, security, and maintenance," Peter Olsson, the company's Manager Operational Safety, Security and Transport, said.
SKB will develop the Port of Forsmark to serve more ships as well as use the harbour in its construction projects to lower the use of road transportation, including a repository for short-lived radioactive waste in Forsmark.
SKB hopes to receive a green light from a land and environment court by the end of May 2023, after which the company will start upgrading the port.
