Indian contractor Larsen & Toubro (L&T India), with the technical assistance of Russian specialists, has completed the installation of the dry shielding at the reactor vessel for unit 3 of the Kudankulam NPP under construction in Tamil Nadu, Russia’s Atomstroyexport (ASE) said on 11 August. Dry shielding is a cylindrical shield with a metal lining, filled with serpentinite concrete and located around the reactor vessel. It serves to weaken the neutron flux, and also helps to prevent excessive heating of the reinforced concrete structure of the reactor shaft. The equipment was manufactured by Russia’s Tyazhmash in the city of Syzran. The weight of the cylindrical screen filled with serpentinite concrete is 140 tons.
