Nuclear Waste Cask Transport
Manufacturer: Hilman Rollers
Nuclear Plant, Georgia USA - 2001
Equipment Used - Hilman 150-XOTL 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.
Once outside, the casks are moved to a concrete pad site for temporary storage.
The project required the Hilman Rollers to be bolted to the base plate of a specially designed, low-profile cart used to carry the spent nuclear fuel casks. The casks are transported from inside the reactor building through a set of low clearance hatch doors.
