Moving hazardous materials needs precise control
Handling hazardous materials and sensitive loads in the nuclear sector can be a challenge.
Highly regulated and controlled environments mean that manual handling is often relied on to move heavy-wheeled loads – presenting the risk of injury.
Moving heavy vessels and tanks puts staff at risk, leading many nuclear providers to turn to electric tugs.
Powering up safety in nuclear
Electric tugs enable operators to safely control heavy-wheeled loads, eliminating the need for manual handling.
Compact and powerful, a single operator can precisely move heavy loads weighing over 70,000kg with complete control, reducing the risk of damage and maximising safety.
The benefits of electric tugs for nuclear
Safe, secure and controlled, electric tugs ensure loads are moved with accuracy and stability – reducing the risk of collisions.
Maintaining a safe distance
Electric tugs take the manual element out of movement, allowing operators to stand further away from the load being moved – minimising contact.
Using electric tugs empowers highly skilled staff to focus on tasks of greater value add, improving morale and productivity.
A secure connection, every time
Robust and secure coupling systems ensure loads remain connected, guaranteeing total load security and maximising control.

Electric tugs are used by nuclear facilities to improve safety when moving loads such as:
Yes, all of our electric tugs can be converted to meet ATEX standards. Our electric tugs can be converted to operate in zones 1 and 2 (gaseous explosive environments) and zones 21 and 22 (powder or dust explosive environments) to meet ATEX and IECEx standards.
Working with best-in-class explosion-proofing providers, MasterMover ATEX electric tow tugs can safely work in hazardous environments, allowing you to maximise workplace safety and efficiency.
Electric tugs are battery powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tugs can deliver 24/7 operation to keep your processes moving. Offering zero emissions from the point of use, electric tugs are ideally suited for indoor use, replacing internal combustion engine (ICE) powered equipment such as forklifts or tow tractors.
A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety.
Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
