» IAEA begins reviewing the fuel removal work

IAEA expert team began reviewing fuel removal work that has just started at a spent fuel pool inside the damaged No. 4 reactor building in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. TEPCO finished taking out the first batch of unused fuel assemblies last week and said it will start removing spent fuel from Tuesday.

IAEA team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo said at a press conference in Tokyo , “The removal of the spent fuel is an essential activity toward decommissioning. Our idea is to review the full process that TEPCO has developed for the purpose and all the precautions adopted to develop these activities in a safe way.”
