Hannecard: doors joints of Chernobyl new safe confinement sarcophagus skidding are made by us !

The final movement - Chernobyl new safe confinement sarcophagus skidding.

The final movement - Chernobyl new safe confinement sarcophagus skidding from VINCI on Vimeo.

It’s in 2017 that we will close the doors of the Chernobyl ark, this sarcophagus 108 meters high which will cover the nuclear
reactor of the Ukrainian central whose explosion was in 1986.
To ensure perfect sealing of the si-over doors, the Novarka consortium in charge of building the ark, retained Hannecard.
This Company has designed and manufactured in La Flèche (France),joints to ensure containment of the radioactive material for a century.
The first job of Hannecard is the rubber or others elastomers covering for rolls used in many industries. It develops for that expertise in the
formulation of rubber, and a production of technicalparts in extruded or molded rubber. « This contract, signed in 2015, was a huge challenge,
our champion’s league », note Geroeges Joncourt, director of Hannecard France (EUR 20 millions turnover, 140 employees).
The company worked on the formulation of a rubber with a very long lifetime, resistant to radioactivity and the Ukrainian temperature.
Although experienced in the nuclear field, Hannecard has validated its solutions through the use of external laboratories, for aging test and other technical requirements.
"We had to perform qualification testing, testing, and ensure drafting the documents showing the results in English and Russian, says the executive. 30 people worked on the project."
The transport of these joints, some of which exceed 100 meters long, was also a challenge.
It took three presses to move butting them there. "This contract has highlighted our added value in technical parts,
notes Georges Joncourt. There will be commercial benefits."
