Gearboxes for nuclear facilities

Gearboxes, which are used in nuclear facilities, for example nuclear power stations, are subject to extremely high safety regulations. Our certified design and fabrication employees ensure smooth processing of the comprehensive TÜV acceptance procedure.

The fundamental prerequisites are:
