Re Agreement

Vattenfall Treasury AB
2 July 2001

Change in ownership of SwedPower International AB

SWECO and Vattenfall have agreed to terminate their collaboration in the
jointly-owned company SwedPower International.

SWECO's subsidiary company SWECO Energuide AB and Vattenfall AB have for many
years conducted consulting operations in electrical power technology outside
Sweden through SwedPower International AB. The companies have now agreed to
develop operations separately, under their own auspices.

This means that SWECO is withdrawing from SwedPower International in order in
the future to run operations abroad in the area of electrical power under its
own name. Vattenfall will continue to run its consulting operations abroad
through SwedPower International, which becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary in the
Vattenfall Group.

SWECO Energuide will conclude its current assignments in SwedPower
International's name.

'The change is a natural step in creating greater flexibility in the
international operations of both companies' say Jan-Inge Gidlund, President of
SwedPower International and Erik Severin, President of SWECO Energuide.
