OKB “GIDROPRESS” has shipped equipment components to Kalinin NPP
On 17 of October OKB “GIDROPRESS” has shipped one set of elastic tubular components and eight pitch position indicators for Kalinin NPP Unit 1. Elastic tubular components are intended to prevent reactor internals from vibration during reactor power operation. Pitch position indicator is a part of a pitch electromagnet drive of the reactor control and protection system (CPS drive ShEM-3) and intended to control the position of absorbing rods in VVER-type reactor. The shipped equipment is intended to replace the equipment with the expired service life. Both pitch position indicators and elastic tubular components are designed and manufactured at OKB “GIDROPRESS” and are used at NPPs under operation and at NPPs to be commissioned.
