R2D2

A robot to test nuclear reactor thermal sleeves.
R2D2
The cover of a nuclear reactor vessel is fitted with thermal sleeves that allow the control clusters to pass through. EDF’s Industrial Division is the first in the world to develop a robot fitted with an ultrasonic head and camera, which sit on a remotely-operated buggy. It identifies areas that are showing wear, thereby optimising the frequency of replacements that can lead to prolonged outage periods.
Project developed by EDF group.
