Facility Management Department
In Nuclear Plant Decommissioning Safety Research Establishment of Sector of Fukushima Research and Development of JAEA, the remote control equipment and device development facility has been constructed for R&D of decommissioning of TEPCO'S Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. This facility consists of the test building for various demonstration tests and the research management building for equipment of worker training and user's workroom. The demonstration test area for the technique to repair a water leakage at the PCV, development and demonstration test area for the remote controlled devices and the shareable area, are prepared in the test building, assuming that the two types of tests are performed in parallel. Furthermore, the accessory building, consists of researcher's rooms and workshops for development/demonstration tests of disaster response robots, is prepared in the test building. The research management building consists of worker training rooms, user's rooms, office rooms and multipurpose area. In the multipurpose room, it is also possible to hold international conferences. This report summarized the result of implementation design of the remote control equipment and device development facility. In addition, this facility started construction in September 2014.
