Teleca renews fuel handling machine for nuclear power station

Teleca renews fuel handling machine for nuclear power station Benima, part of the Teleca group, has made an agreement with OKG AB to replace the control and operating system of the Oskarshamn plant's fuel handling machines. The commission will last about 2 years and the order is valued at over SEK 25 M. The commission will involve Benima rebuilding the fuel handling machines for the Oskarshamn plant's reactors 1, 2 and 3 so that they are identical, thus making them easier to operate and maintain. The operational staff's working environment will also be improved. "We're seeing a clear trend towards more and larger total undertakings in the energy industry, which suits us because we have well-documented experience and skills in this area," says Kenneth Fredriksson, President at Benima Sydost AB. The fuel handling machines at Oskarshamn 1, 2 and 3 are outdated, which means that their reliability could become a future problem. The rebuilding of the machines will ensure a more reliable operation. The machines will also be easier to maintain because they will have the same design and documentation. The working environment will be improved by installing a new monitoring system and digital loading lists that will complement the current manual handling. Transporting reactor-vessel fuel will also be made more efficient after the machines are rebuilt because they will then be able travel diagonally. The fuel handling machines are used mainly to handle fuel but also for other work associated with the reactor vessel.
