The steel basket weighs 53 tons. It is 10 metres long and 6 metres high. It is intended for testing of cranes, and in the future, it will be used not only in the turbine building, but also in other facilities of the plant under construction.

After the basket itself is tested, it will be used to start the first operation to prepare of large-size equipment – the turbine stator for lifting. For this purpose, the basket will be loaded with a weight of more than 400 tons. Thus, it will model the loading on the crane equal to the load of the stator weight. These are preliminary actions before installation of the stator on the base.
