12/03/2007
The contract includes support for the Ringhals, Oskarshamn, Forsmark and KSU power plants to administer the facilities’ block computer systems, an advanced real-time system used in part to oversee plant operations.

Stockholm, 8 Mars 2007 - Capgemini Sverige AB has signed a new five-year systems administration contract with all Swedish nuclear power plants in operation, as well as nuclear training and safety company KSU. The deal is worth approximately SEK 50 million.

"Through the leading-edge expertise in Capgemini, we will focus primarily on enhancing our existing block computer systems," says Nils-Erik Näslund, contract manager at KSU. "Our goals are to expand the systems’ life span by about ten years and to successively adapt the systems over time to the changes the plants undergo. We are convinced that this partnership agreement will help us achieve this goal both cost-effectively and safely."

"In collaboration with the power plants, we will develop several improvements, such as a new display system for the facilities’ control rooms and a new communication platform that will simplify the exchange of data with other information systems," says Bo Olofsson, project manager at Capgemini.

One of the world’s leading suppliers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, Capgemini has provided Application Management services (service management, user support, maintenance and further development) to the Swedish nuclear power industry’s operations monitoring systems for 20 years.
