In June, JSC TYAZHMASH began transportation of the first core catcher produced for NPP Akkuyu. The main units — body and filler — were shipped to the facility. Syzran plant is responsible for the equipment delivery directly to the construction site of foreign customer.

Within three days the core catcher body and filler cartridges were delivered to the berth of JSC SNPZ using two trucks with modular low-frame platforms. The equipment with weight of 362 tons was shipped to Volgograd.
