Konecranes, a leading lifting equipment company, has recently signed a contract to modernize the bridge crane used in the reactor hall of the Swedish Oskarshamn nuclear power plant. The order for the contract was placed in the fourth quarter of 2023. Over the course of two years, Konecranes will design, manufacture, supply, and install the modernization components, including a new 165-ton trolley lift.
The bridge crane plays a vital role in ensuring that strict regulatory requirements are met during reactor maintenance and the removal of spent nuclear fuel transport tanks. As such, it is crucial that this equipment is up-to-date and functioning at peak efficiency. With this contract, Konecranes will be able to provide an updated bridge crane that meets these requirements while also improving overall safety and efficiency on site.
This project marks another significant milestone for Konecranes in its ongoing commitment to providing innovative solutions to meet customer needs. By working closely with customers like Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant to understand their specific requirements and develop tailored solutions, Konecranes continues to position itself as a leader in the lifting equipment industry.
