Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (hereinafter referred to as Toshiba ESS) has announced that it has developed a device that investigates the status of deposits at the bottom of the pedestal area interior of the primary containment vessel (PCV) of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Unit 2.

Using know-how cultivated through previous investigations at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Toshiba ESS added a finger drive mechanism for touching the deposits to investigate their condition to the telescopic guiding pipe.

The device is scheduled to be shipped to Fukushima Prefecture and deployed to the interior investigation of the PCV at Unit 2 in February after the installation.
