Konecranes, a leading lifting equipment company, has been awarded a contract to modernize the bridge crane used in the reactor hall of the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant in Sweden. The order for the project was placed in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Under this two-year contract, Konecranes will design, manufacture, supply, and install the necessary components to upgrade the bridge crane. These components will include a new 165-ton trolley lift that is essential in meeting regulatory requirements during reactor maintenance and spent nuclear fuel transport tank removal.
The bridge crane plays a vital role in ensuring safety and compliance with regulatory standards at the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant. With this modernization project, Konecranes aims to improve the efficiency and reliability of this critical equipment while maintaining high safety standards.
