Ukrainian authorities have approved a giant steel cover for the radioactive Chernobyl nuclear reactor. The plan is to build a steel structure to replace a crumbling concrete casing put over the site after the 1986 accident. The project is expected to cost £700M.

CSC has launched a new Fas- trak Hollow Section Connection Design module, which replaces CIDJoint. It designs welded hollow section connections of various configurations including I and H section chords. Hollow section connection designs can include a range of international steel sections for various countries. Hollow section chords can be incorporated in Y, X, K and KT connections. I or H section chords are available for Y, X and K connections.
