Industries

Nuclear power is the use of sustained nuclear fission to generate heat and electricity. Nuclear power plants provide about 6% of the world’s energy and 13–14% of the world’s electricity with the U.S., France, and Japan together accounting for about 50% of nuclear generated electricity.

Recently, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported there were 439 nuclear power reactors in operation in the

world, operating in 31 countries. Also, more than 150 naval vessels using nuclear propulsion have been built.

Heavy lifting equipment for the nuclear industry must be able to handle extremely strenuous circumstances without causing harm to employees, public health, and the environment, impairing facility equipment or operations, or losing control of loads.

Type of cranes used are Polar Cranes, Fuel Handling Cranes, Proof Cranes, Missile Shield Cranes and Turbine

Maintenance cranes, where first one it´s most popular used in Nuclear Industry.

Regarding lifting components, forged parts are fully required due to high critical environment and safety factor requisition. Main high level requisition, its Safety Factor, where components often are required as Safety.

Thus, current certification mainly based on KTA 1401 as well as KTA 3901/02/03 by TÜV provides required guarantee in order to be chosen as high prestige partner for nuclear projects.
