Fukushima – No Place for Man or Robot

It has been 5 years, since CBRN Europe travelled over to Japan to coordinate, train, protect and support those working in the initial phases of the Fukushima disaster. It has been a zone of technological, nuclear and protection development and innovation. We have seen projects from developing an ice wall to steam the leaking radiation to innovative robots entering the plant and being affected by radiation.

This disaster is an ever evolving and ever changing situation. You can find out more about the current situation by reading the article found at Reuters.

Fukushima’s ground zero: No place for man or robot | Reuters The robots sent in to find highly radioactive fuel at Fukushima’s nuclear reactors have “died”; a subterranean “ice wall” around the crippled plant meant to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated has yet to be finished. And authorities still don’t know how to dispose of highly radioactive water stored in an ever mounting number of tanks around the site.
