3 Exposition of the Robotized Equipment In Chernobyl

Exposition of the Robotized Equipment In Chernobyl

Posted on June 11, 2013 by team

Sometimes those who go to Chernobyl today do not even want to come back – comparatively good roads,  everything is neat and clean, beautiful nature, a lot of fish in the river, pure air, no people around – an ideal place to rest at!

There is an open air museum in Chernobyl where one can see robotized equipment that was tried to be used right after the explosion of the reactor. Why tried? Because it did not live up to expectations, it turned out to be impossible to do everything there without people. So they had to send soldiers to the reactor who worked there for fourty seconds. One ran inside, broke something with a crow and ran out, another one ran inside, took debris out with a shovel and so on…

Nonetheless these and other robots did a lot of work and saved many lives.

Robot STR-1 that was working on the roof of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. It was actively helping to clear the roof of the NPP from radioactive elements of the destroyed reactor. It was being used at the gamma-ray background up to 3000 roentgens per hour. In some areas (at the bottom of the vent pipe №2) the radiation level reached 10 000 roentgens per hour.

This vehicle probably dumped debris in the open reactor after big bulldozers had cleared larger debris away.
