Plunge Cutting

BD Nuclear has developed a rig to allow plunge cutting with wire. The system is semi remote keeping in line with the principles of ALARP.

The rig is adjustable and designed specifically to cut openings into vault, cell or silo concrete roofs/walls. This is undertaken to allow equipment access to the voids for waste retrievals/access. The rig incorporates lifting arrangements to allow safe remote removal of the plug once freed.
