Createc secures biggest Japan contract so far

The team at Createc has secured a significant new contract with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to develop a suite of innovative radiation sensors for use at the Fukushima nuclear site in Japan.

“We’ve been working with the Mitsubishi team for a while,” says Matt Mellor. “This new contract covers the concept and early stage R&D for a suite of sensors. If all goes well, these sensors will then be commissioned for use at Fukushima to locate and quantify the fuel debris in the primary containment vessels on the tsunami-damaged site.”

“Our Japanese connections are strong after several months of travel, meetings and discussions with the people working at Fukushima,” says Trevor Craig. “We reckon that we’ve probably spent more than six months in Japan so far and have travelled over 120,000 miles and we’re anticipating more to come as this project takes shape.”
