Ringhals nuclear power plant is located about 60 kilometres south of Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden. In commercial operation since 1976, the power plant has two pressurised water reactors and produces around 17 TWh per year.
A major industry
Ringhals is a major industry. The running of the facilities is an important part of the operation. However, a considerable amount of research and development is also conducted here. Many of our engineers are specialists, and among the foremost in their field in the world. Ringhals has around 1,175 employees and an annual turnover of around SEK 5 billion. Ringhals AB is owned by Vattenfall (70.4%) and Sydkraft Nuclear Power (29.6%).
Future of Ringhals
It is more than forty years since the first kilowatt-hour of electricity was produced at Ringhals. Our oldest reactors, Ringhals 1 and Ringhals 2, were decommissioned at the end of 2020 and 2019, respectively. For Ringhals 3 and 4 we have plans for at least 60 years of operational lifetime, until the beginning of 2040s.
