Our BusinessFukushima Reconstruction Project
Helping to revitalize the community in Fukushima
At ATOX we have positioned Fukushima revitalization work as one of our top priorities, and in addition to our work in operating contaminated water treatment equipment, radiation control, and environmental improvement within Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, we are working on radiation control for intermediate storage facilities.
We carry out residual water transfer and cladding recovery (cleaning) inside flanged tanks so that the tanks can be dismantled, as well as radiation dose surveys and decontamination in order to reduce dosage levels in plant buildings. We also use drones to conduct dose surveys in high dose areas and for ariel photography.
Range of tasks
- Transfer of residual water and cladding recovery from the inside of flanged tanks
- Site building radiation dose survey and decontamination
- Operation of drones for dose survey and ariel photography
Equipment and plant maintenance
We operate and maintain cesium adsorption apparatus (KURION) and secondary cesium adsorption apparatus (SARRY) in order to lower the concentrations of cesium and strontium contained in contaminated water. In addition, for the purpose of removing most radioactive substances other than tritium, we operate and maintain existing and expanded multi-nuclide removal systems (ALPS), supply chemicals and, carry out maintenance on auxiliary equipment.
Range of tasks
- Contaminated water countermeasures Equipment operation and maintenance
- Used water treatment
In order to provide appropriate protective measures for workers engaged in restoration work at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, we regularly measure radiation and radioactivity within the site. We also provide cleaning services for municipal facilities.
In Fukushima prefecture, we carry out radiation control work such as decontamination work in sludge treatment facilities and purification centers, and waste treatment in the countermeasure areas. In addition, we respond to local needs at our Tomioka Warehouse.
