Bright Future for Jobs at Sweden’s State-Owned Energy Company

Energy giant Vattenfall is to employ 6,000 more people in Sweden over the next 10 years.

The company announced on Monday that this is connected to its plans for more investment in the production and distribution of electricity over Sweden and that the current economic crisis will not affect this.

Vattenfall’s Deputy CEO Hans von Uthmann says that his company is likely to be the one that invests the most in Sweden for some time.

Vattenfall is a state-owned company dating from the early 20th Century.

It operates Sweden’s hydro and nuclear power plants but also runs private energy companies internationally.
