Security enhancing measures on nuclear power plants



Swedish Net delivers contracts within security enhancement measures with a focus on physical and technical protection for nuclear power related activities. We can deliver system design, engineering, ground works, construction and installation as a functional contract in cooperation with a nuclear power plant’s own organisation.


As the general contractor together with Forsmarks Kraftgrupp AB and subcontractors, Swedish Net built a checkpoint for vehicular traffic at Forsmark nuclear power plant. The checkpoint consists of six lanes for traffic, each 350 m in length. Control stations and traffic islands separate the lanes and boom gates control the traffic flow. The contract also included housing for security personnel.

The project started with a in-depth analysis of needs, system design, budget and thereafter development of construction documents. The following implementation phase included everything from ground works to buildings. The checkpoint also consists of multiple security systems such as emergency power, security management systems and radio communication. Both wireless and wired control systems were installed for the gates and barriers.

We have also delivered a similar contract to Oskarshamn nuclear power plant.
