As part of its R&D efforts for the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS), the IRID (development by Hitachi GE Nuclear Energy) is involved in developing fundamental technologies for the retrieval and removal of fuel debris and internal reactor structures, and subsidizing costs for the Decommissioning and Contaminated Water Management Project.
