*** Call for Technical Catalogue Proposals for Fukushima-Daiichi ***

Dear Researchers and Companies of Robotics and Component Technologies

In order to overcome the challenges towards the removal of fuel debris
in the decommissioning process of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear
Power Plant Units 1-4, the development and deployment of robotics
technologies, or remote-controlled equipments and devices, are important keys.

With regard to the Japan Government R&D project of such technologies, a
consortium which is composed of Toshiba, Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industry was selected.  

The consortium requests for information of applicable technologies by
disclosing their initial plans and technical needs in order to gather
international expertises and in order to accomplish the removal of fuel
debris within ten years by addressing such technical difficulties.

This call for technical catalogue proposal was announced at the
International Symposium held in Tokyo on March 14, 2002.  Please refer
to the following documents for its detail.
