For the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, we will do the maximum efforts

Orano ATOX D&D SOLUTIONS CO., Ltd. (abbreviation ANADEC) is a Joint venture established in July 2014, as a result of the fusions of the rich experiences and the advanced D&D technologies of the worldwide French company Orano with the field force and nuclear facility servicing of the Japanese company ATOX. ANADEC aims to promote the decommissioning program of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and, furthermore, has the purpose to contribute to the D&D projects of the national nuclear facilities.
Since our establishment, ANADEC, in cooperation with Orano and ATOX, participated in 3 national projects in relation to the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (Purification technology for the sea water of the Fukushima NPP harbor, purification technology for the groundwater of the Fukushima NPP and a method to remove the fuel debris) and completed them as planned. Currently we are involved in the next stage where these technologies and method results will be applied to the actual site.
ANADEC demonstrated its ability to propose pragmatic and reliable solutions for outstanding situations.
The decommissioning of the Daiichi NPP will be an extremely difficult task that has never been encountered in the world until now, as the whole picture of the accident is not yet clearly assessed. ANADEC is willing to pay the maximum effort with the local and national governments, the domestic manufacturers and the power company in introducing the best technology to proceed with safety and reliability to the decommissioning plan of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP.
