SYNEOX PRESENTS ITS NEW MONITORING ROBOT FOR NUCLEAR PLANTS

Paris, September 29th 2015

 

INNOVEOX (Alternext, FR0011066885 – ALIOX), specialist provider of solutions for the definitive treatment and recovery of toxic industrial waste, presented today to the Aquitaine Region press the new monitoring robot of Syneox, its subsidiardy specialist of robotic systems for nuclear waste inerting and dismantling. This robot, SX1, will be dedicated to nuclear plants monitoring.

 

These robots will ensure permanent monitoring, marking and evaluation missions of irradiated areas. These operations were previously performed by technicians, unable – for reasons of exposure –  to continually and accurately evaluate possible variations in radiation rates. These robots, totally suited for nuclear plants, will work by fleet and ensure maximum safety of humans, in a preventive and reliable way. Over options are possible but remain confidential for the time being. Nevertheless, SX1 robot could benefit from a revolutionary communication system dedicated to industrial connected objects, currently developed by Syneox teams.

 

The first SX1 robots will be delivered (after approvals) by the end of 2016. Innoveox has already received a first order from a large french group to evaluate this product, Syneox always working from local sites needs and orders. « We imagine and design innovative and made-to-measure technologies, in order to solve issues of our partners » indicates Christian Delavaud, Head of Innovation in Syneox.

 

Syneox, which won EDF innovation challenge in 2011, entered in 2015 the Aquitaine Robotics Cluster and is pursuing its partnership with regional universities, especially the IPB (Bordeaux Polytechnics Insitute) directed by François Cansell, so as to continue to develop new increasingly innovative products.
