Energid Develops Prototype For Power Plant

Considering their current problems with robots trying to help in the nuclear cleanup, Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy industries has made an agreement with Energid to develop a power plant inspection robot. The plan is to make one that can inspect the heat exchanger and steam tubing system faster and more reliably. COO Neil Tardella says he believes Energid was chosen because they have worked with NASA in developing the K10 rover. We hope that the new collaboration proves to be successful.
