Russian AEM Technologies to supply reactor equipment for Belarusian nuclear station

Written by
ZAO AEM Technologies, a daughter enterprise of Russian OAO Atomenergomash, has won the tender to supply reactor equipment and core melt isolators for power-generating units No. 1 and 2 of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, BelTA learned from the company. The reactor installation will comprise the reactor shell, the upper module, a shaft, a baffle, a block of protective pipes, and other products. The company plans to supply a total of about 4,000 tonnes of equipment for the Belarusian nuclear station in 2013-2017. “Since the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant is ahead of schedule, we have already started fulfilling this key order. The equipment will be made by the Volgodonsk branch of AEM Technologies. It is the largest mechanical engineering factory for the nuclear power industry in Russia and the world,” said OAO Atomenergomash Director General Andrei Nikipelov. He remarked that specialists of the company had visited the construction site recently and had been impressed by the organization of the work and professional skills of Belarusian colleagues. AEM Technologies Director General Yevgeny Pakermanov said that the Volgodonsk branch of AEM Technologies has the capacity to make the equipment for the reactor island of the Belarusian nuclear station on time. The company uses unique equipment, employs qualified specialists and has a long record of making important equipment for nuclear power plants. The VVER-1200 type reactor is a batch-produced reactor system with the unit capacity of 1,200MW. With its technical and economic parameters and the safety parameters accepted by the international power industry community, the Russian design is competitive on the home and foreign markets. The same design is being used to build the Baltic nuclear station, the second Novovoronezh nuclear station, and the second Leningrad nuclear station. IAEA experts have recognized the design as one of the world’s best in safety parameters. At present AEM Technologies is busy making a reactor for the Baltic nuclear station, including internal devices, a block of protective pipes, and the upper unit. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in 2014. The branch also has a long record of making core melt isolators, the so-called traps. The factory has supplied two traps to the second Novovoronezh nuclear station and one trap to the Baltic nuclear station. A second one is being manufactured for the latter and will be shipped this year. ZAO AEM Technologies was founded in 2007 as part of OAO Atomenergomash. The daughter enterprise operates the head engineering office of AEM Technologies in Saint Petersburg, OAO Petrozavodskmash, and the branch in Volgodonsk (Atommash). The product choice grows larger all the time and now includes equipment for the nuclear industry, heat power engineering, gas, oil, and chemical industries. The company specializes in the wholesale manufacture of nuclear reactors, engineering and consulting services, including the design of the basic equipment for nuclear power plants. OAO Atomenergomash is a leading power machines manufacturer of Russia and is the mechanical engineering division of the Russian state corporation Rosatom in charge of making machines for the power industry. Atomenergomash provides effective comprehensive solutions for nuclear power industry, heat power industry, gas, oil, and chemical industries. The company unites about 30 major manufacturing, research, and engineering enterprises in Russia and other countries.
