System Components for Reactor Operation
Babcock Noell supplies handling systems required during reactor operation such as e. g. the handling system of the reactor pressure vessel closure head. The RPV Closure Head Equipment is a two-tier support and transport system.
During reactor operation, the lower part, the accessible support system, is mounted on the RPV closure head and is used for supplying power to the control rod drives and to diverse measuring systems. In the case of a maintenance inspection, the transport cross head is mounted and connected to the support system to lift and transport the RPV closure head.
The component is designed and dimensioned such that the special load case of an earthquake can safely be managed.
Scope of supply and services:
Detailed engineering and calculation, material sourcing, pre-fabrication, transport, pre-assembly on-site, final assembly, all construction and quality checks as well as final documentation
