Small update from ChNPP about the first bridge crane's lift operation that started yesterday. It is still being lifted as I speak, with 2 of the 3 carriages on board (classic and secure). The total weight is 825t. The second bridge crane will be lifted in march 2016 and will weigh 813t (including 110t for the mobile tool platform). Both bridge cranes range 96m wide and will be at 82m high.

ChNPP also uploaded a video about the NSC, sadly it's in ukrainian and I don't speak the language. If anyone does and is willing to share what's being said in the video, that would be greatly appreciated.

The second crane will be the same size of the first one?

Yes, the second bridge crane in itself will be exactly the same. While being lifted it will have a different carriage on board, but once in place all three carriages will be able to move across both cranes.

By the way, I updated the thread's first post to include useful information about the project's milestones, and also webcam links. I also went back and reuploaded most dead-linked pictures.

Will the cranes closest to the reactor be able to used ever again after they absorbed so much radiation?

Cranes that were previously used around the reactor are still used today (liked the MD3200 that was there a few months back), so I'm guessing the current ones will also be able to work elsewhere. No official confirmation, though.

Two videos from ChNPP, but once again in ukrainian.

One of them offers what I assume are early design for the NSC.

For external cladding, it's steel plating, heat insulation, EPBM, another layer of heat insulation and finally Kalzip panels. For internal, steel plating covered by polycarbonate (Lexan).

Article in russian, found by Alex_Riccio on the ukrainian thread. It has pictures of the work going on inside the turbine hall, next to the MD1100 (big yellow crane).

They are cleaning up part of the hall to lay foundations and then erect two 37m high walls (east and west) to seal the section of the hall under the NSC.







And since there aren't any new picture coming from ChNPP, here's a capture from the webcam, showing the mast climbing work platform they install on the west wall to help with cladding.
