On 25  June 2019, the Competence Center “ROBDEKON – robot systems for decontamination in hostile environments” was opened in Karlsruhe. ROBDEKON is to function as an expert and user network for technologies for (semi-autonomous) decontamination using robots. Kraftanlagen Heidelberg is involved in the project as a consulting industrial partner.

With many years of experience and its expertise in the fields of nuclear technology, energy and power plant technology as well as remote handling and handling of highly radioactive substances in hot cells, Kraftanlagen Heidelberg is making an important contribution to the development of a practicable system, particularly in the decommissioning of nuclear power plants and the decontamination of plant components.
