Quotes

"Sweden has an electricity system that is almost optimal when you consider that nearly 50% comes from nuclear power and nearly 50% from hydro power. It is a clean, competitive and stable electricity system. To get out of that situation, which every other country would dream of being in, is bad news for Sweden and a bad example for the rest of the world."
"It is important that the government sets a framework that creates long-term conditions for Vattenfall's operations. One must understand that lower profitability means less money for investment in renewables. We feel we have a responsibility in terms of security of electricity supply in the future" said Magnus Hall, Vattenfall's president and chief executive
"Our strategy has been that the oldest reactors would be phased out by default if we raise the safety demands on them" said Adam Bergsveen, the party's political secretary
"This contract marks a fresh milestone in our product and sales strategy in northern Europe and, specifically, in Sweden, one of our priority markets" said Ricardo Chocarro, chief executive of Gamesa Europe & RoW
