P&H nuclear cranes from Konecranes Nuclear Equipment & Services use precise speed control, safety features, and critical load handling capabilities to operate reliably under the most extreme load handling conditions.

Konecranes also provides equipment and site support for steam generator and reactor head replacements.

All meet strict nuclear regulations for nuclear heavy load handling applications; ASME NOG-1: Rules for Construction of Overhead and Gantry Cranes; and 0CFR50 NRC regulation Appendix B.

The firm also conducts engineering evaluations and equipment feasibility studies, inspection services, and on-site training at nuclear facilities.
