The second polar crane produced by JSC TYAZHMASH was delivered to Belorusskaya NPP

March 13, 2017

Earlier this month, the polar crane with capacity of 360 tons arrived at the second unit of Belorusskaya NPP. Previously JSC TYAZHMASH had delivered the polar crane to the first power unit.

Polar cranes for Belorusskaya NPP were manufactured using the most advanced solutions. Crane traveling mechanism was equipped with separate drive and system of bridge sides synchronization. The crane was fitted with aseismic thrusts preventing crane from derailing in case of external impact. Hoisting mechanisms were equipped with supplementary disc brakes to increase safety of transportation and processing operations.

Electric hoist of foreign manufacture was replaced with hoist on the crane gantry. Despite small size this element acted as trolley with traveling and hoisting mechanism as well as suspension with capacity of 10 tons.

Under the concluded agreement, JSC TYAZHMASH will equip the 1st and 2nd power units of Belorusskaya NPP with other complex items — reactor facility equipment and transport locks.
