Nuclear Waste Cask Transport
LOCATION: GEORGIA, UNITED STATES
PRODUCTS: 150-XOTL MODIFIED ROLLERS
Hilman Rollers proved to be a high capacity and low profile solution used for the on site transport of nuclear fuel casks at this nuclear power facility. The rollers used are 150 metric ton capacity, which are outfitted with high yield steel frames and the Accu-Roll Guidance system to fit the embedded rail track.
The project required the Hilman Rollers to be attached to the base plate of the "LPT" (Low Profile Transport) and are used to move the spent nuclear fuel casks in and out of the facility. The casks are transported from inside the reactor building through a set of low clearance hatch doors.
