About Ringhals

Ringhals produces 20 per cent of all the electricity used in Sweden. The four reactors produce around 28 TWh in a normal year – sufficient to supply six cities the size of Gothenburg with electricity. The total power output is approximately 3932 MW.

The nuclear power plant is one of the few in the world to have both boiling water and pressurised water reactors. The reactors were commissioned between 1975 and 1983.

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 AB has around 1,600 employees and an annual turnover of just over SEK 8 billion.

Ringhals AB is owned by Vattenfall (70.4%) and Sydkraft Nuclear Power (29.6%).

Future at Ringhals

It is more than forty years since the first kilowatt-hour of electricity was produced at Ringhals. 

The end operation of our oldest reactors, Ringhals 1 and Ringhals 2, has been set to 2020 and 2190, in connection with the yearly outages.

For Ringhals 3 and 4 we have plans for at least 60 years of operational lifetime, until the beginning of 2040s.
