Cranes and Manipulator Carrier Systems
Babcock Noell supplies cranes and manipulator carrier systems for the most diverse nuclear plant applications, and in particulary for hot cells. Just like cranes, manipulator carrier systems consist of a crane bridge, a crab and a hoisting gear with the corresponding gears. The manipulator carrier systems are equipped with telescopes and manipulators according to the customer specifications. As per requirements, cranes and manipulator carrier systems are made to comply with guidelines for conventional and nuclear applications respectively. The design also takes into consideration special requirements such as protection against load crashes as well as integrity following incidents such as earthquakes and plane crashes.
The controls developed by Babcock Noell range from a simple control box to a fully automated control for systemized workflows.
