Angra NGS Reactor Head Replacement
The project was to replace the reactor head at the Angra NGS near Rio De Janiero. This involved reusing the control rod drive mechanisms, removing them from the original reactor head and installing them on the new head.
My roll in the project was to:
1. Design a full scale mock-up for testing and training, along with various tools and devices for the job.
2. Specify and document the rigging to be used for every lift during the job.
3. Project manage the installation of a 5 ton overhead crane in company shop to use during the mock-up.
