Political half-content in the Långforsen Jämtkraft's largest owner, Östersund Municipality, wants to investigate the prerequisites for a sale of Långforsen power station to an economic association. Published 2017-04-05 "I am still positive about the possibilities of renovating the facility. At Langfors we have unique conditions for producing renewable electricity while meeting modern environmental requirements. But of course we have to deal with what the owners want, "says Anders Ericsson, CEO of Jämtkraft. In parallel with the process, Jämtkraft is going to review and update the basis and economic calculations around Långforsen. Anders Ericsson believes that Jämtkraft must have a serious counterpart to negotiate. "Those who might buy Långforsens power station must have the resources to be able to take responsibility for power stations and ponds, and it costs money. This has to be done commercially, says Anders Ericsson. Jämtkraft AB is owned by 98 percent of Östersund municipality. The municipality of Krokom and Åre each owns 1 percent.
With thousands of old power stations in Sweden we still sit with the fact that big companies like Jämtkraft can and will force them selves on the political aspect of what is enviromental friendly powerstations.
