JSC TYAZHMASH will supply equipment for nuclear-powered icebreaker

February 27, 2017

In November 2016 JSC TYAZHMASH and JSC Afrikantov Experimental Design Bureau for Mechanical Engineering (JSC Afrikantov OKBM) concluded two agreements on supply of equipment for nuclear-powered icebreaker.

Specialists of JSC TYAZHMASH will manufacture two sets of equipment for icebreaker reactor facility maintenance. The first set will include seventeen items for dismantling and mounting of steam generator cartridges. The second set will contain six items of handling complex including devices for loading of new fuel assemblies. During welding and machining of metal structures, special attention will be paid to stainless steel because it will be used as a main material. During testing, complete performance check of mechanisms and simulation of operation with fuel assemblies using telescopic boom will be carried out.

Organizational measures will be completed soon. The order specific character means strict requirements to assembly conditions, cleanness of working spaces, and compliance with various manufacturing techniques.
