The analysis of accident scenarios and experience feedback has resulted in the production of intervention standards and then the definition of human and equipment resources to successfully conduct them.
As a result, Groupe INTRA has build up a fleet of equipment including:
- Indoor robots capable of entering buildings and operating inside
- Outdoor vehicles for visual reconnaissance environmental characterisation and interventions outside the damaged unit
- Remotely-controlled civil engineering machines (a bulldozer and a digger) with a shielded control station that protects the operators from radiological risks
- An airborne gamma spectrometry system installed beneath a helicopter (HELINUC) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicules that can make observations and take radiological measurements
- A radiation monitoring system using gamma-ray probes which transmit data back to the control statio,
- Llogistical support equipment (power generators, fuel, workshop, and other logistical supplies) to keep the INTRA Group mission control running
- Communication equipment for transmitting information, measurements and videos to the nuclear operators’ crisi/emergency organisations and to the IRSN (Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety Institute)
- 21 permanent staff seconded from EDF, CEA and AREVA (shareholders companies).
- 24 non permanent staff, working on shareholders companies sites, trained in operating inddor and outdoor robots. Thet are on call and can be mobilised in case of crisis
