System Components for Safety Systems
In nuclear technology, safety is the highest priority. Among other products, Babcock Noell supplies mechanical components for the stabilization system for a hypothetical core meltdown (Components of Core Melt Stabilization System).
Located underneath the reactor, the melt plug is fastened to a wall installation frame by locking bolts. For maintenance purposes, the melt plug is unlatched by a remote-controlled transport system and transferred through a channel to its park position on a transport cart. The system also features neutron shielding on tracks.
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
