Nuclear Waste Containers

100mm thick S355 cylinders for nuclear waste containers

Storing and transporting nuclear waste requires extra strong and thick containers. Kersten produces nuclear waste containers, by carrying out cutting, rolling, welding, machining and coating services.

First we cut the plate material to size. We provide the plates with welding preparation in the same machine set up. The 100mm thick plates (S355) are rolled into cylinders of 1600mm diameter. The cylinders are welded together, machined and provided with a cap (120mm thick). The containers are coated.

Scope: Cutting, rolling, welding, machining and coating.
