DISMANTLING OF FORMER RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SUBMARINES: DANIELI HENSCHEL know-how for a contract under high control!

This is a very special version of baling shear that just be tested in our plant in Kassel, Germany. This is indeed capable to shear steel sheets up to 9 cm thick. Another of its features is a system of dust extraction overkill, purifying the air by a system of filters. “This baling shear is fully integrated into a full installation of nuclear waste management,” says the engineer Klaus Biermann, who leads the project.

Within a year, it will be commissioned in Saida Bay in Murmansk, where about 150 decommissioned nuclear submarines have to be scrapped. “The core hosting the nuclear reactor will be cut and stored tightly for at least 100 years … The rest of the submarine is still slightly or moderately radioactive. For this reason the air cleaning system of the shear  is so important. Submarines are dismantled in a big hall … nothing escapes to the outside”.

Plant commissioning of that shear were conducted with the customer on several days. In a second step, it will be disassembled and prepared for transport. Loaded on a ship in Hamburg, it will cross the North Sea to Murmansk to perform the assembly during the winter.

 

700 TONS BALING SHEAR DANIELI HENSCHEL

DANIELI HENSCHEL scope of supplies covers the all equipment, transport to Murmansk, assembling in a close military zone, and of course service. The customer is the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology involved in this international project of dismantling submarines to 1 billion euros!
The objective of this project is to stop proliferation and recovery of nuclear materials for terrorist purposes. And as part of disarmament agreements, Russia has reformed many submarines.

And it will take at least ten years until all the nuclear submarines are scrapped.
