OKB “GIDROPRESS” has shipped equipment elements for Novovoronezh NPP
On 18 of October 2017 OKB “GIDROPRESS” has shipped 30 clamping devices for Novovoronezh NPP Unit 6. The clamping devices are used at the top unit of the VVER-type reactor. The shipping was carried out significantly before the target date (it was planned for March 2018). The clamping devices are intended to prevent the reactor internals from vibration during reactor plant power operation and to provide reliable fixing of the internals in the reactor. They prohibit the reactor internals from vertical movement which may be caused by the coolant flow. The clamping device is designed by OKB “GIDROPRESS” and manufactured at its production facilities.
