Electrical installations on the New Safe confinement in Chernobyl

Our company was taking part in finishing the electrical installations on the world’s biggest mobile arch (New Safe Confinement, or NSC) in Chernobyl, Ukraine, which replaced the old shelter over the nuclear reactors and is now securing the area from nuclear radiation for the coming 100 years.

Our technicians were working on the electrical installations of the specialized equipment inside the arch, which made it possible, after the construction period, to remove the old shelter and clean up the reactors underneath without people getting exposed to radiation – every process was handled from a control room outside of the arch.

The giant metal arch that has been covering the shelter since 1986 is the biggest mobile metal arch in the world. It would be able to cover the ground area of the Eiffel Tower, and it weighs 3,5 times more than the Eiffel Tower.
