Within the framework of the project, 5 units of heavyweight equipment were delivered from the production facility of the the Volgodonsk Branch of JSC “AEM–technology” to a crane ship in Novorossiysk. The equipment is intended for the Rooppur NPP in the Republic of Bangladesh.
Work on the project began on April 17 and ended on June 21, 2021. Five pieces of oversized equipment (4 reactor vessels and 1 steam generator) and additional equipment were transported on one barge in order to reduce the delivery time interval.
“All operations were executed as planned, without any incidents. We have conscientiously approached all stages of work”, says Konstantin Domchev, head of the transportation project.
Oversized equipment dimensions:
- VVER-1200 reactor vessel: weight – more than 347 tons, length – 1145 cm, width – 570 cm, height – 535 cm;
- Steam generator: weight – more than 333 tons, length – 1412 cm, width – 570 cm, height – 526 cm.
