Modernization of the Cernavodăd nuclear power plant in Romania

Published: 30/9, 2019

Romania's only nuclear power plant is located in Cernavodă, a small town near the Black Sea coast. The power plant consists of two blocks and produces about 20% of the electricity for the entire country. As part of a block modernization project, approximately 400t of concrete had to be decommissioned in a controlled manner under the strictest safety conditions.

Diamond Drilling SRL used machinery from Tyrolit to complete the task including the dismantling. Its main assignment was to cut and remove 72 linear ft (22 m) of reinforced concrete walls more than 17 ft (4.5 m) high and 29.5 in (750 mm) thick. The project team also removed many large concrete columns as well. The Tyrolit tool arsenal included WCE14 and SB-E electric wire saws, and the WSE2226 wall saw.

Despite a very hard concrete quality, as well as bad weather conditions with freezing temperatures, the job was completed in half the schedule time. The employees of Diamond Drilling SRL proved that with the machines from Tyrolit even the toughest conditions are no problem.
