In June, 2018, Litostroj Power signed a contract for a complete modernisation and upgrading of the polar crane (Electric overhead crane of circular motion), installed in the first block of nuclear power plant “Yuzhnoukrainskaya” in Yuzhnoukrainsk, Ukraine. The final costumer is “Energoatom Ukraine” and main Contractor is Škoda J.S., Czech Republic. Litostroj Power will be responsible for design, manufacturing, delivery, supervision of installation and commissioning of all mechanical components.
Originally, the crane was supplied by Litostroj in middle 80’s. It was successfully in operation without any modification or major overhaul and operated safely and reliable until today.
Litostroj Power will re-design and manufacture all crane mechanisms in the way to meet new, more demanding requirements and enable safe and reliable operation for many more years. The new equipment shall be delivered before the end of 2019. The works at site are scheduled for first months of 2020.
