Sweden is the latest country to assist in the clean-up of the failed Fukushima fourth reactor. Husqvarna Construction is supplying a DXR 140 and DXR 310 that will tear down some of the damage and deal with the contaminated debris.

Takenaka Construction has been trained in their usage but they believe it will be years before things get back to even semi-normal.
