Everything we touch, everything we do, is completely crazy. To stop radioactive dust from escaping, the arch must form a perfect seal around the old reactor building. Fifty-thousand people once lived here, many of them workers at the nuclear plant. The danger comes from earthquakes. Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. And then, after, they will have to break the concrete. Every year, on the anniversary of the disaster, the people of Slavutych, the town where most Chernobyl workers now live, remember those who lost their lives. With winter approaching, the team is working to a tight deadline. So, yes, we have to be very, very careful. At last, this huge thing is built and it's going to move to where it should be. NARRATOR: Spring 2016, the massive cranes have arrived from America. The solution was to replace the tube with a platform supported on wires. But the engineers have one thing on their side. NEWS CLIP, VOICE OF MAN DIRECTING "LIQUIDATORS”: Akuratno, Akuratno. Because of the enormous size that they had envisioned, they wanted some verification that it was possible. NARRATOR: This is the critical maneuver everyone has been working towards for seven years. But the site is still too radioactive for builders to construct a new cover directly over the old reactor. Please note that all guests must bring a form of identification and may be subject to a random bag search. I wish there were more of us left. Battling arctic winter weather—and lethal radiation—this is the inside story of the epic race to build Chernobyl’s MegaTomb. For the winter period, we can lose three months, four months of the year. Attention! After Chernobyl exploded, it spewed radioactive dust onto the surrounding countryside. IMAGE: Image credit (construction of New Safe Confinement) © WGBH Educational Foundation. Battling arctic winter weather—and lethal radiation—this is the inside story of the epic race to build Chernobyl’s MegaTomb. They must partially lower one of the tilting panels. We are under pressure. It's the biggest, biggest problem on here. IAN CARLING: The biggest problem we have is the weather. Directed by Gwyn Williams. NARRATOR: Each jack has enough power to lift over two loaded jumbo jets. Episodes. JEAN-PHILIPPE GARDEUR: Okay, guys, so we will start the jacking now. Thanks.". You have to protect the structure and repaint it. The only solution is to build the new shelter to the side of the reactor and slide it into position. Next, they will slide the two halves of the arch together to make one enormous structure. Even when we had that sort of exposure, they said there are no units to replace us. from fluid pictures PRO . Certainly, it would release another major release of radiation into the environment. Our arch is warrantied for 100 years, so at the maximum, they can take 100 years. 4 years ago. BJORN-EVERT VAN ECK RASMUSSEN (Engineer): That's going to be very tight, that's for sure. JEAN-PHILIPPE GARDEUR: Everything on this field is huge, is enormous, you know? It's crumbling. Before engineers slide the arch over the reactor, they must install them and the carriage that will carry the robotic arm. We can start. MIKE WOOD: So, we can see that we've got an elk here and wild boar, as well. NARRATOR: At the center of the hot zone, they cleared the radioactive debris from the roof of the exploded reactor. NICOLAS CAILLE: It's a big project, with people from everywhere in the world, so, yeah, it is very, very challenging. It has taken 18 years of planning, seven years of construction, and a unique international collaboration of 10,000 men and women from 30 countries, but three decades after the world's worst nuclear accident, Chernobyl is finally sealed away, for generations to come. NARRATOR: Six years after the sarcophagus was built, the Ukrainian government held a competition for ideas for a new containment structure, to make the Chernobyl reactor safe. The metallic structure cannot last 100 years. In the surrounding area, they washed down surfaces to remove the radioactive dust. It's a great challenge because of the size. NARRATOR: It appears that, thanks to the absence of humans, some animals are thriving in the exclusion zone. NARRATOR: Even when its roof is complete, the arch will be far from finished. NICOLAS CAILLE: They received, probably, 200 different ideas. Radiation makes the job too dangerous to do by hand, so the workers must rely on tools operated at a distance. It would shake the heavy tube, generating extreme forces that could damage the arch. The threat of China is becoming big news, the media is beating the drums of war as the world is being primed to regard China as a new enemy. ELENA OBI (commissioning engineer at Novarka): Yes, we can lift. Although Chernobyl isn't in a seismic area, it is only 400 miles from the Vrancea zone in Romania, one of the most active seismic areas in Europe. NARRATOR: With the wire removed, there's one last task before the final push. There is still a lot of the radiation in organic stuff but as long as you are not drinking the water or eating an apple off a tree you are fine. Gamma rays, like X-rays are made of high-energy photons and can travel long distances. The ducts will constantly recirculate the dry air to make sure that the atmosphere in the enclosure remains dry, so the steelwork doesn't rust. Please register online by Wednesday 8 February 2017. I mean, as I'm French, I take the example of the Eiffel Tower, which is repainted every seven to 10 years. Geert-Jan Thijssen leads the team that will move the arch. Nature has reclaimed the empty human settlements. NARRATOR: There's another challenge that makes this already complex project even tougher, the lack of time. The Chernobyl disaster of 1986 resulted in a radioactive fallout which was 100 times greater than a nuclear bomb. NARRATOR: At 40,000 tons, it will be the largest structure ever moved on land. I have already a lot of white hair, and the sooner it will be finished, the better it will be for me. Please scroll down to get them, or go here for a preview Documentary which follows the construction of a trailblazing 36,000-tonne steel structure to entomb the ruins of the nuclear power plant destroyed in the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. The extreme radiation prevented the workers from completing the welds needed to seal the prefabricated sections of the sarcophagus together. This low-friction surface will help the stainless steel feet of the arch to slide. As the gamma rays leave the reactor, they get further apart from each other, and some are absorbed in the air. ROB OWEN: This is at least twice as long, if not more, than we had ever done. ROB OWEN: We have the six wire ropes and a lot of weight here, as you can see, on the bottom. NARRATOR: Once the shelter has been moved into position over the old reactor, this crane, yet to be fitted with its robotic arm, will start dismantling the ruins of the Chernobyl reactor. Before they slide it over the reactor, engineers must transform it into a machine designed to deal with Chernobyl's radioactive debris. 1.0k votes, 73 comments. To solve this problem, they're engineering the steel to be inside a special climate-controlled environment. 1 The New Safe Confinement (NSC) was designed to prevent further radiation leaks from Ukraine's stricken Chernobyl nuclear power plant. So, it's very, very dangerous. BAPTISTE BRIOIS: It's coming closer and closer. Related Documentaries. Inside Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb. SIMON EVANS: The collapse of the shelter itself over the old reactor hall is the apocalyptic scenario, which we must avoid. NARRATOR: He stops to check some critical devices. DAVID DRISCOLL (Health and Safety Manager): We provide everybody with dosimeters. In time, like any building, the arch would eventually collapse, and a future generation would need to build another, even bigger structure to keep the reactor safe. NICOLAS CAILLE: It will hit the chimney. NARRATOR: To reach all the way from the ceiling of the arch to its working height on the sarcophagus, the telescopic tube would have to be massive, and that weight is the problem. To push the arch, engineers will fit each leg with hydraulic pistons. A large earthquake here would be felt in Chernobyl.

Find out when Inside Chernobyl's Mega Tomb is on TV. Jean-Philippe Gardeur is gearing up for the final lift, to raise the second half of the arched enclosure to its full height. Documentary which follows the construction of a trailblazing 36,000-tonne steel structure to entomb the ruins of the nuclear power plant destroyed in the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Radiological engineer Nicolas Guilcher measures the radiation across the site. NARRATOR: The World Health Organization estimates that more than 2,000 liquidators have died, or will die, as a result of the radiation they received. NARRATOR: The pads are made of P.T.F.E., the polymer used on non-stick cookware. The vast scale of the project was what attracted French engineer Nicolas Caille. Today in Ukraine an international team of engineers is racing to assemble one of the most complex super structures ever built, at an extraordinary 36,000 tones it will be the largest structure moved on land. Working 300 feet above the ground, it's a precarious operation to wrestle the wires back into place. IAN CARLING: This cladding, it's stainless steel, and it is designed for the purpose of containing any airborne contaminated particles from escaping into the environment, during the dismantling of the reactor Number 4. INTERVIEWER: What could go wrong during the skidding? The doc will air on BBC4 this month and in spring 2017 on PBS in the US. I mean you can't go back. China is building airstrips in the South China Sea on disp. The Film. NICOLAS GUILCHER (Radiation Protection Engineer at Novarka): You can see, here, the reactor Number 4, which was damaged in ‘86, and at about 200 meters from the reactor, the platform where the arch will be built. Winter temperatures here can plunge to minus-20 degrees Fahrenheit. NARRATOR: One remaining job is crucial before they slide the arch, opening its enormous special doors. NARRATOR: But just as the arch approaches the reactor, they run into trouble. Learn how your comment data is processed. For decades, the authorities have used the zone as a dumping ground for contaminated machinery from the clean-up operations. ROB OWEN: We kind of had to really go back and study the design. So, once the arch will have reached its final location, the radiation conditions do not allow a manned operation at that location. NARRATOR: It takes four hours to winch the massive "cat door" open. ROB OWEN: The weight of the telescopic tube just kept growing and growing; it would just be outrageous. NARRATOR: The team relies on 13 hydraulic jacks, fixed near the top of the arch, to lift the 900-ton crane into position. NARRATOR: No one has attempted to dismantle an exploded nuclear reactor before. This paint will last 15 years. If successful, this special crane will be deployed alongside conventional cranes to dismantle the damaged reactor. Two and a half years after construction began, it's late fall, and engineers are anxious to entirely cover the shelter's enormous roof before the winter storms hit. Three-hundred-sixty-nine stairs. We have achieved something great. It simply stood on the ruins of the destroyed reactor. MIKE WOOD: When we put the cameras out, we take a G.P.S. SIMON EVANS: This equipment monitors the stability of the existing shelter, which is absolutely essential to ensure that we know exactly what is going on here. GUILLAUME MOREL: Nothing, everything should be fine. The vast structure, as heavy as three-and-a-half Eiffel Towers, slides towards the reactor at about 33-feet-an-hour.

NICOLAS CAILLE: It's a feeling of pride. In a race against time, engineers are struggling to prevent another catastrophic release of deadly radioactive debris into the environment. These will slide on Teflon pads, placed on top of the rails. So, instead of wheels, engineers will use a hundred-and-sixteen stainless steel feet, known as skid shoes. To prevent another deadly catastrophe, engineers will entomb it inside a completely new shelter. Each day, on trains like this, over 1,000 people travel to work at one of Europe's most dangerous and high stakes construction sites. It was a lie. This part of the plan has not been worked out. Four-and-a-half years after work began, to build the 40,000-ton shelter, the day finally arrives when the team will attempt to slide it over the reactor. We do know that a zone of deadly radiation has been released. The entire new structure has been designed to … Eighty, ninety people will be involved. GEERT-JAN THIJSSEN: If you move one side faster than the other, you will get bending in the arch, which can lead to damage of the arch. You can imagine a sail in the air, and the material is razor sharp. Transcript. Inside Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb will air on Wednesday 21 st December, 9pm, on BBC Four. GEERT-JAN THIJSSEN (Mammoet): Over these nooks, we put the Teflon pad. Executive Producer is Windfall Films’ Creative Director, Carlo Massarella. Inside the ceiling of the arch, they will attach two giant robotic cranes. NARRATOR: Moving this massive structure will be no simple task. TONY DELAPORTE (engineer): Now we can lift? Inside Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb (BBC4, Wednesday) was a stark reminder of how violent radiation is, and how bloody reluctant it is to fade away. On one, they will attach a giant telescopic tube equipped with a robotic arm. The gap between the arch's exterior roof and interior ceiling will be sealed, creating a vast enclosed space around the steelwork. We have some junctions here, so, because of this gap, we have to do a compressed sealant, which makes the air seal tight. Sliding the arch over the reactor walls will be tight. Find out when Inside Chernobyl's Mega Tomb is on TV. New documentaries straight to your inbox. tl;dw. NICOLAS CAILLE (Novarka): It's the biggest moveable structure in the world. The makeshift containment structure over it is collapsing, threatening to release radiation into the environment. Yes. If they wait until the arch is in position, then, as they close it, it would jam on a chimney. It … Required fields are marked *. And it also had to carry a tremendous payload at the end. A 60-minute version of the film, produced by Windfall Films (part of Argonon) for BBC Four in association with NOVA/WGBH, PBS Distribution, and France Television, NHK and … But, aside from the absence of people and a few warning signs, there is little indication that large amounts of radioactive material fell on this land. Home › Off Topic NICOLAS CAILLE: We have to provide tools to enable the deconstruction. NARRATOR: In its final position over the reactor, the arch will be impossible to repaint. IAN CARLING: Horosho. GUILLAUME MOREL (General Methods Coordinator): People will follow the sliding, itself, of the arch. Powerful fans will pull in air from outside, channel it through massive dehumidifiers to remove moisture, then blow the dried air along two miles of aluminum ducts, into every corner of the enclosed space. Today he has a 26-story climb to the control room. IAN CARLING: Some of the materials that we're using, they can act like&hellipa; kite, if you like. The right half of this building contains the reactor that exploded. We don't have small things. سال انتشار: ۲۰۱۶. Inside Chernobyl's Mega Tomb. Building Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb follows the team of international engineers as they race against time to build the structure over the disaster site. They will mount them on two concrete runways that extend alongside the crumbling sarcophagus. It's very sad. If its roof collapses, it will throw another lethal cloud of radioactive dust out into the atmosphere, where the wind could blow it over the surrounding area. Windfall Films, part of Argonon, has been commissioned to produce a 60-minute unique access special, Inside Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb, for BBC Four. NARRATOR: They're battling freezing weather and lethal radiation, in a desperate race to build Chernobyl's MegaTomb, right now, on NOVA. Just as the team is raising the heaviest panel, a blizzard strikes. Building it this way enables the construction crew to keep a safe distance from the destroyed reactor, where the radioactive materials left inside present the most danger to the workers. On that day, technicians were carrying out a new test on this Soviet-built, water-cooled nuclear reactor. This is a jacking and lifting, so, I will ask you to not stand under the load, if you don't need to be under the load. MIKE WOOD: We're hoping to be able to understand more about the way in which the range of large mammal species that we see is, or is not, influenced by the radiation levels. I think they preserve these just for occasional visitors. Its job: to entomb the crumbling remains of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. NARRATOR: It will take 40 huge jacks to raise this metal monster. But it was flawed from the start. In Ukraine's harsh climate, that's a daunting challenge. Unfortunately, we will not be able to renew it once the arch will be in the final position, because the radiation conditions at that location are too severe for a painter. All the cables remain in tension. Hastily, a so-called “sarcophagus” was built to contain the radioactive materials that lingered at the site after the explosion. Inside Chernobyl’s Mega Tomb joins a captivating roster of programming from the BAFTA and Emmy award-winning Windfall Films. Man, women, the elderly, and children were all in the sadistic killer's sights. Man, women, the elderly, and children were all in the sadistic killer's sights. So, first of all, it is to remove the roof over the exploded reactor. And Ukraine and Europe will be much safer now. So, engineers have equipped the arch with tilting panels, like giant cat doors, that they must raise and then lower into place when the arch is in position, sealing the small remaining gap with an extra-durable plastic membrane. Gtech. They are heading to Chernobyl, in North Central Ukraine, once part of the Soviet Union. IAN CARLING: This job, it's extremely dangerous: the winds, the rains. Thirty workers died; 50,000 people fled the nearest city, and the radioactive fallout spread over Europe. This program was produced by WGBH, which is solely responsible for its content. To prevent this, engineers must design a system within the arch to clean up the destroyed reactor. In 1986, when the Chernobyl reactor exploded, it exposed workers and firefighters to high levels of gamma radiation. Episode guide, trailer, review, preview, cast list and where to stream it on demand, on catch up and download.

It will be the largest structure ever moved on land. And as it gets exposed, the level of radiation will get much, much higher than it is today. NICOLAS CAILLE: This is a one-off skidding. NICOLAS CAILLE: It will be a complicated task. It took two weeks in … Where it settled, it contaminated both the land and livestock. NARRATOR: By placing traps at 84 randomly chosen sites in each area, Mike hopes to discover how many different species of large mammals live in each place. Most Satisfying. Inside Chernobyl's Mega Tomb Thirty years since the disaster at Chernobyl, there are members on here who weren't even conceived when this played out. The workers have just 11 days to prepare to move the arch. VIKTOR IVKIN: There were roses everywhere. DAVID DRISCOLL: We're coming to the end. There was a lot of greenery, and many young people, and the river flowing right through the city. In Shoreview, Minnesota, Rob Owen leads the team building a special remote-control crane to dismantle the reactor. In Minnesota, Rob Owen leads the team designing the dismantling system.
