In the fourth quarter of 2023, Konecranes, a lifting equipment company, signed a contract to update the bridge crane used in the reactor hall of the Swedish Oskarshamn nuclear power plant. The contract has a two-year schedule during which Konecranes will design, manufacture, supply, and install the modernization components.
One of these modernization components is a new 165-ton trolley lift that will be installed in the bridge crane. This crane plays an important role in ensuring that strict regulatory requirements are met during reactor maintenance and the removal of spent nuclear fuel transport tanks.
Konecranes has agreed to update this bridge crane as it is crucial for maintaining safe and efficient operations at the nuclear power plant. The company’s expertise in designing and manufacturing lifting equipment will ensure that the modernization process goes smoothly and efficiently.
