Advisory Board Member
Saida Laârouchi Engström is Vice President for Strategy and Programmes at SKB, the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company. She started her career in The Swedish Nuclear Inspectorate as a safety inspector of nuclear installations in Sweden, and went on to lead the feasibility studies to select a site for a final repository for spent fuel in Sweden. Nuclear power companies in Sweden jointly established SKB in the 1970s. SKB’s assignment is to manage and dispose of all radioactive waste from Swedish nuclear power plants in such a way as to secure maximum safety for human beings and the environment. SKB manages a system of facilities used to handle all waste from Swedish nuclear power plants. These facilities include a central interim storage facility for spent nuclear fuel (Clab) near Oskarshamn, and a final repository for short-lived radioactive waste (SFR) in Forsmark.
