We deliver the equipment for contaminated water measures and pool fuel removal with regard to the decommissioning program, which are specified in the “Mid-to-Long-Term Roadmap towards the Decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Units 1-4 (Mid-to-Long-Term Roadmap)“ and “Mid-and-Long-Term Decommissioning Action Plan 2020“, to Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. based on the experiences and achievements accumulated as a plant manufacturer. We are implementing the following activities for research and development on mid- and long-term issues regarding the decommissioning program specified in the “Mid-to-Long-Term Roadmap” and “Mid-and-Long-Term Decommissioning Action Plan 2020.” We will continue to contribute to decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station through technological development.
Following the accident in Fukushima in March 2011, The Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) was established in Japan and has been conducting compliance reviews enforcing the new regulatory requirements. To enable BWR nuclear power plants in Japan to restart quickly, We support BWR business operators in the NRA review to obtain approval. On this page, we will explain outlines, features, and the status of developing technologies that have been introduced in BWRs through the new review process.
We provide total solution for Nuclear Power Plant construction and operation projects. We offer planning and detail design of the systems, manufacturing and delivery of the main equipment, construction and maintenance of the plants.
We advance the securing of safety, the improvement of economic efficiency and the reliability enhancement to ensure that nuclear power plants are operated safely and securely. We will adapt Lumada to support the safe and stable operation of nuclear power plants.
We are working to develop radioactive waste processing technologies and decommissioning technologies at nuclear facilities based on our track record in the construction of these facilities and in regular inspections and maintenance work at plants in operation. With a focus on radioactive waste processing, measurement of radioactivity, chemical decontamination and cutting from among our radioactive waste disposal and decommissioning technologies for nuclear power generation facilities, the following outlines individual technological areas and presents their respective features and progress in development.
We must establish methods for efficient utilization of Uranium resources to supply reliable and constant nuclear power. Appropriate technologies might include fast reactor and nuclear fuel cycle. We have been developing such technologies.
We will adapt Lumada to support the safe and stable operation of nuclear power plants. We aim to implement co-creation activities, from the extraction of issues to solution services, while sharing them with you.
With the IT/IOT tools we have as effective means to solutions, we will propose “Lumada” in the co-creation activities.
Based on proven BWR construction experience and fuel cycle-related technologies, we are conducting international joint development of three types of reactors: BWRX-300, a small, light-water reactor featuring enhanced economic efficiency, RBWR, a light water-cooled fast reactor, and PRISM, a metal-fueled and sodium-cooled fast reactor through the open innovation platform, from the perspective of creating new reactors that reduce initial investment-related risks and high level waste, and provide a long-term stable power supply.
