MSc`s e-drive system for the world’s first highly radioactive nuclear waste transporter
A significant milestone of the project was reached in the middle of December in the presence of the customer. All functional and electrical system tests were successfully completed at the factory premises prior to delivery to the vehicle manufacturer.
MSc is supplying converters and energy storage for Posiva’s canister transfer and installation vehicle (KSAA), which is a battery powered electric vehicle operating underground. This will be the first nuclear fuel canister transfer and installation vehicle in the world.
