Sandvik Materials Technology has concluded a multi-year supply agreement for the delivery of cladding tubes in zirconium, valued at more than SEK 3 billion. Deliveries will take place over a number of years commencing in the first quarter of 2011.

This delivery agreement for cladding tubes further strengthens our position as a supplier of advanced materials to this demanding market," says Peter Gossas, President of the Sandvik Materials Technology business area.
