Provide full and safe access to EDF technicians required to carry out repeated tasks on sensors in this EDF nuclear research and development centre.
Another problem is the very specific shape of the assemblies to be made safe, consisting of a set of large pipes nested within each other.
The requirement to be located as close as possible to the structures where scaffolding is to be erected to ensure 100% safety of EDF employees.
This use of components that are mostly used in the construction industry is a case which opens the way to new, highly industrial solutions.
Tubesca-Comabi proposed a multi-directional structure solution, the only one capable of being moulded as closely as possible to the shapes involved.
The access points were provided by Mecastep stairs.The advantage of this solution lies in its flexibility. Unlike a fixed, single solution, the Tubesca-Comabi project offers the possibility of changing the structure's shape, if needed, to ensure that it continues to provide the best possible safety conditions.
