The equipment is designed for nuclear fuel charging in reactor and spent fuel replacing with a new one during power unit operation.

Polar overhead crane was used for this operation. Refueling machine bridge was installed on the rails for its further moving.

Refueling machine consists of mechanical hardware (bridge, trolley, servicing platform), control system, monitoring system. The equipment is controlled remotely.

The total weight of the assembled refueling machine will be 60 tons. Following its complete assembling and testing, the machine will be commissioned and used to load dummy assemblies (nuclear fuel) as part of the cold-hot trials of the reactor equipment.
