–From 3.11 toward the future-
We have created a new web content featuring ROBOTS applied to decommissioning operations. This page introduces robot applications inside the reactor buildings, which have been disclosed chronologically in our web site, with pictures, videos, and documents.
With support and cooperation of both domestic and international corporations and organizations, robots has been applied to the operations, such as the decontamination of the high-dose radiation area and the removal of fuel debris, and contributed to the reduction of operational risk of radiation exposure.
The subdrain system, a group of wells, prevents groundwater from entering the reactor and turbine buildings and stops highly contaminated water generated. In order to prevent marine pollution, we are planning to operate another group of wells (groundwater drain) in the bank protection area and to close the sea-side impermeable walls along with the subdrain operation.
The pumped-up water is confirmed of its quality to meet the strict standard and then drained into the ocean, improving the quality of sea water in the harbors.
The purified water will be only discharged with the agreement of the relevant governments and local fishermen.
