OKB “GIDROPRESS” has loaded equipment elements for Belorus NPP
On 4 of October OKB “GIDROPRESS” has loaded two sets of clamping devices for Belorus NPP Power Units 1 and 2. One set includes 24 elements. The clamping devices are used at the top unit of the VVER-type reactor. It was the first load of equipment from OKB “GIDROPRESS” to Belorus NPP. The clamping devices are intended to prevent the reactor internals from vibration during reactor plant power operation and to provide reliable fixing the internals in the reactor. It is achieved by means of creating force to the reactor internals which prevents them from vertical movement due to the coolant flow during reactor operation. The clamping device is designed by OKB “GIDROPRESS” and manufactured at its production facilities.
