An unprecedented challenge: Developing the “Scorpion-shaped robot”

02:59

Produced by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc.

In a collaborative effort, TEPCO, Toshiba, and IRID developed a “Scorpion-shaped robot” to investigate conditions of the melted-down fuel debris and the Unit 2 Primary Containment Vessel (PCV) at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. It would be a significant step forward in the decommissioning work to obtain any information from the PCV, such as digital images, temperature data, and radiation levels. This video introduces the challenges for this robot as well as the commitment of Toshiba engineer Takayuki Nakahara who deals with this very challenging mission.
