The company Novarka is building a new sarcophagus over the destroyed nuclear reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine. This unique construction will look like a huge arch and will be 257m long, 162m wide and 108m tall. The new confinement is designed to last for 100 years of safe operation.
In September 2015 the company signed a contract with Blastrac Ukraine has supplied Novarka with equipment for work on the new structure including a triple head grinding machine BMG-435W and dust collector BDC-1330. Blastrac also trained operators and helped to choose the right toughness and grit compounds of the grinding segments.
