Fukushima Nuclear Plant Rescue Robot - Critical players in nuclear disaster cleanup

Fukushima, Japan

b

Radiation leak occurred in March 11th, 2011 in Dokofu province Pacific Ocean due to the earthquake of 9.0 magnitude destroying Fukushima first nuclear power plan reactor 1-4.
Amount of damage : Approximately 25 trillion yen, reconstruction cost : Approximately 33 trillion yen

a

  • Approximately 12 Million Ton of highly concentrated contaminated water was held in the Fukushima nuclear plant. Radiation was extremely high due to the remains of earthquakes and hydrogen explosion.
  • TEPCO employees tried to recover the plant despite the deadly nuclear radiation .coating, but the probationary work failed to show progress.
  • Robot Commission sent numerous robots for quick probation.
  • Worrior : Another robot developed by the iRobot. 68kg/length:6.4cm/bear up to 100kg fire hose for large amount of water supply.
  • Dragon Runner : Compact robot developed for US Marine to verify internal damaged situation of the plant.
  • Snake Robot : Developed by the Tokyo Engineering University. 65cm amtrac. It rescues victims by digging 7m into the damaged remains.
     
Radiation leak after the earthquake. Caused damage to production point, effected overall Japanese society and economy, shrinking consumption sentiment
T-Hawk flying robot : USA Honeywel company developed a 33cm sized, 18kg weighing compact flying robot T-Hawk. It shoots outer damage area to inject nitrogen cooling through waterproofing. Packbot : USA iRobot company developed 90cm long tank fighting robots to measure chemical matters and level of radiation, and shoot inside the plants
Human inaccessibility due to radioactive spills.
