Pioneering Autonomous Inspection for Enhanced Nuclear Safety at Onkalo

February 21, 2024

Inspection robots enhance nuclear safety. In collaboration with the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre, and Posiva Oy, ANYmal autonomously patrols and monitors Onkalo’s depths at Finland’s spent nuclear fuel repository. ANYmal serves as a fail-safe safety device, documenting nuclear waste storage without human presence, contributing to improved safety, productivity, and the future of robotic nuclear plant inspection. Automated Inspections Enhance Underground Nuclear FacilitiesThe Onkalo spent nuclear fuel repository, located near the Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant in Finland, is the world’s first long-term disposal facility for spent nuclear fuel and is currently under construction by Posiva.
