During the six years since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that led to the accident, TEPCO has been working with many partners, such as Toshiba and Hitachi, in the development of innovative robots and other technologies. Its purposes have ranged from exploration inside reactor units to water purification, and many other tasks.
Now, through a new website, TEPCO is seeking additional technology partners, for the continuing work at Fukushima, as well as to help it improve the quality of electricity production and distribution and to help conserve energy.
Of particular interest to TEPCO are:
- Technology for reducing the volume of waste, such as plastic and polyethylene, used in water storage tanks that store RO-concentrated salt water. https://cuusoo.com/projects/49863
- Consulting services about methods for on-site recycling to reduce the amount of radioactive solid waste being generated. https://cuusoo.com/projects/49861
- Technology for leveraging drones and man-made satellites to quickly ascertain the status of company equipment and the surrounding environment in the event of a natural disaster. https://cuusoo.com/projects/49497
- Networking technology for obtaining large volumes of recorded data, and technology related to sensors for ascertaining the status of facilities and equipment and measuring attributes about the surrounding environment. https://cuusoo.com/projects/49490
The examples mentioned above are merely a portion of the knowledge TEPCO says it desires. More information is available at https://tepco.cuusoo.com.
