TVEL Subsidiary to Supply Refuelling Machines for Akkuyu NPP

Atommash has successfully performed the hydraulic tests of the reactor pressure vessel for the first power unit of the Akkuyu NPP under construction in Turkey
To carry out the final stage in the manufacturing process of the reactor pressure vessel, a special underground test bench is used - a caisson. A support ring was placed in it, on which, using a crane with a lifting capacity of 600 tons, the reactor pressure vessel was installed in the design position and closed with a process cover. Hydraulic tests were carried out in accordance with a special technology, during which a maximum pressure (24.5 MPa) was generated in the reactor pressure vessel 1.4 times higher than the operating pressure.
The reactor is a vertical cylindrical 334 tons-weight vessel with an elliptical bottom, inside of which the reactor core and internalsare arranged. From above, the reactor is tightly sealed by a cover with the drives of mechanisms and control elements designed to regulate and protect the reactors and nozzles for outputting the cables of the sensors for on-site monitoring installed on it.
