Vattenfall stops deliveries of Russian nuclear fuel

No deliveries of nuclear fuel from Russia to Vattenfall's nuclear power plants will take place until further notice.

We are deeply concerned by the serious security situation in Europe and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

We have therefore decided that no planned deliveries from Russia to our nuclear power plants will take place until further notice.

We will also not place any new orders from Russia to our nuclear power plants until further notice.

Our procurement strategy is based on having multiple suppliers from different countries, in order to safeguard our independence and security of supply to our nuclear power plants. Based on this we also have plans to manage possible irregularities in the supply. The operation of our nuclear power plants will therefore not be affected by these decisions.
