Project details

Permanent access for accessing and inspecting concrete enclosures at nuclear power plants.


To develop a permanent suspended platform 3 metres long with capacity for two people or 300 kg and full fairing.

Platform suspended from a motorised cross travel carriage controlled from the platform.

The cross travel carriage runs on two rails on the periphery of the concrete enclosure.


A permanent platform with a capacity of 300 kg and a motorised cross travel carriage on two circular rails.

The platform is equipped with:

We know that standard lifting solutions cannot always meet your needs for carrying out specific works (complex building architectures, highly inaccessible workspaces, etc.), and that is why we offer custom-made solutions based on specifications jointly defined by our design department and your teams.

We study the specific needs of your projects down to the very last detail, and offer customised support based on your actual needs.
