October 12, 2016

At Tianwan NPP in China, mounting of the important elements of fuel handling machine — rail track, bridge, and trolley produced by JSC TYAZHMASH — was completed with participation of Atommasheksport specialists (Volgodonsk). The fuel handling machine represents special-purpose robotic manipulator that will transport nuclear fuel in hazardous conditions. It is the first fuel handling machine in the history of JSC TYAZHMASH.

Manufacturing of this product provides the plant with valuable experience in the sphere of high-technology equipment production, installation of robotic systems and unique hardware and software complexes. As a part of cooperation, Syzran manufacturers have supplied core melt localization device and reactor facility equipment to Tianwan NPP. Substantial order will be completed when TYAZHMASH ships the second fuel handling machine.
