TEPCO 10, began working at the top of the building rubble removal in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant No. 3. Unit 3, because of the explosion damaged the outer wall and the ceiling of the building, which add up debris.
Removal will continue until at least late summer 2012,allowing TEPCO to access the damaged fuel inside the Reactor easier.
In an effort to save exposure from the highly radioactive rubble, around the reactor building a “U” shaped platform (30 meters high and 8 meters wide, 150 m total length) will be placed, and heavy equipment put on it.
The total amount of debris that sees approximately 3500 cubic meters.
Debris removed to measure the surface dose, and storing sorted by the size of the dose.
From around mid-September at No. 4 and advance the removal of the rubble of the building.
The relatively low doses of the work area space, a large heavy demolition work on the person riding.
