ATV leverages all its experience to serve players in the field of nuclear energies.
ATV and major French players in nuclear energy
The nuclear energy sector is a long-standing field of application for ATV brakes. From the outset of the French nuclear power programme, the electromagnetic braking technology mastered by ATV has found its place in the most sensitive lifting applications. This is why ATV brakes are used in all EDF reactors in France.
Safety and Security
The handling of sensitive elements in nuclear areas demands maximum operating safety as well as the shortest possible fall-out time. The design of ATV brakes in the Electromagnetic Safety family ensures these characteristics. Moreover, as they are maintenance-free, they are ideal for hot zone applications.
Lift 1,500 tonnes safely!
On behalf of the ITER International Research Program, the nuclear bridge manufacturer REEL has selected ATV to secure the winches on the Tokamak assembly bridges.
4 winches with 375t capacity are equipped with the ATV S400SH hydraulic calipers…
… The most compact on the market for such a capacity.
In France, and abroad...
Since the 1980s, ATV has been supporting major French players in the nuclear sector in their export contracts.
For instance, the Daya Bay and Lingao plants in China operated by CGN have been equipped with numerous hydraulic fail-safe brakes since they became operational.
This is also true for the ERPs in Taishan (China), Olkiluoto (Finland), Flamanville (France), Hinkley Point (UK), with various applications.
