» TEPCO started removing unspent nuclear fuel from a storage pool

TEPCO has started removing unspent nuclear fuel from a storage pool at the No. 4 reactor building.

TEPCO said Nov. 20 it plans to transfer 180 unspent fuel assemblies stored in the pool to the No. 6 reactor building by the end of December.

On Nov. 18, workers packed 22 such assemblies into a transportation cask and started preparations to transfer it to the site, company officials said.

TEPCO had said it would be transferring the remaining unspent fuel to the No. 6 reactor building, which suffered relatively minor damage in the disaster, as the common storage pool has been filled to capacity.
