Abstract

Naraha Center for Remote Control Technology Development was established for the development and demonstration of remote control equipment and apparatus to promote the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. The center has been in operation since 2016. The mission of the center is to contribute to the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and the reconstruction of Fukushima Prefecture. This report describes the center’s full-scale mock-up test facility, component test equipment for the development of remote control equipment and apparatus, and virtual reality systems and their utilization for the realization of the mission.
