Tepco to abandon the second robot in Reactor 1 again / Camera went out of order due to high level of radiation

On 4/20/2015, Tepco announced they are going to leave the second robot in Reactor 1 as well.

From 4/18 to 4/19/2015, the second robot investigated the first robot that stopped moving inside PCV (Primary Containment Vessel), and they concluded it had one of the wheels stuck between the gratings though they did not release sufficient visual reports.

They need to transform the second robot to let it out of PCV, but one of the cameras was found out of order to control the transformation.

The cause is assumed to be the excessive level of radiation.

As a result, Tepco has decided to abandon the second robot and two of the robots did not bring more than the data they were supposed to send from PCV.

Tepco abandonne aussi le second robot dans le réacteur 1 : Camera en panne à cause de la radioactivité trop forte

Le 20 avril 2015, Tepco annonce qu’ils vont laisser le second robot dans le réacteur 1 aussi.

Les 18 et 19 avril 2015, le second robot avait enquêté sur le premier robot qui s’était immobilisé dans la PCV (Primary Containment Vessel = Enceinte de confinement primaire) et ils avaient conclu qu’une de ses roues s’était coincée dans une grille bien qu’ils n’aient pas publié d’éléments visuels pour l’étayer.
Ils devraient transformer le second robot pour le faire sortir de la PCV mais une des caméras permettant le contrôle de la transformation est en panne.
La cause supposée de la panne est la radioactivité excessive.
En conséquence, Tepco a décidé d’abandonner le second robot. Ces robots n’auront pas apporté plus de données que ce qu’ils étaient supposés en récolter dans la PCV.
