Discussions between Scotland’s leading drinking water engineers and members of the nuclear power industry over a pair of innovative underwater robots have been featured in a leading industry website.
Your Nuclear News, which publishes articles about developments in the nuclear power sector, featured a story about Panton McLeod’s robots and ongoing discussions to adapt them for use in power stations.
Panton McLeod direcors recently met with representatives of the nuclear industry at a robotics conference in Sellafield, where they discussed whether the firm’s two cleaning robots – the VR600 and ROV – could be adapted for work in the nuclear power sector.
The discussions centred on whether the two robots, which are used for cleaning structures used to store potable drinking water, could be altered to clean water ponds used in nuclear power stations.
