REEL supplies cranes for different reactor buildings:
REEL is involved in the modernization of these cranes, updating them to the latest earthquake resistance standards, strengthened safety standards or improved operational performance standards.
The techniques proposed for the lifting systems (hoists, instrumentation & control) meet the highest safety and reliability standards, supported by an optimized human-machine interface.

REEL designs and manufactures spent fuel storage racks for cooling pools.
REEL carries out all the safety studies needed to meet sub-criticality requirements and the integrity of stored fuel: criticality, earthquake resistance, drop resistance, thermo-hydraulic & radiological factors.
Our technology is based upon the separation of neutron-absorbing functions and resistance functions, using borated steel as a neutron poison and a specific design to resist earthquakes. The racks designed by REEL are also used for re-racking operations.
REEL manufactures components for reactor internals
In a plant dedicated to the production of complex mechanical systems in stainless steel, notably the guide tubes for new reactors and replacement operations.
REEL with its subisdiary NFM Systems, design and manufacture Reactor Building containment equipment such as :
REEL proposes filtration solutions for new reactors and replacement operations :
It was a display of Titans, with no less than 1,000 tonnes of steel and concrete test loads attached to the giant hoists
Travelling the entire length of the assembly space (~ 170 metres), the REEL overhead cranes will be the workhorses
