WASHINGTON I Fri Mar 11, 2011 11:05am EST
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States has transported coolant to a Japanese nuclear plant affected by a massive earthquake and will continue to assist Japan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday.

“We just had our Air Force assets in Japan transport some really important coolant to one of the nuclear plants,” Clinton said at a meeting of the President’s Export Council.

“You know Japan is very reliant on nuclear power and they have very high engineering standards but one of their plants came under a lot of stress with the earthquake and didn’t have enough coolant,” Clinton said.

Japan Reactor Being Cooled
LONDON, March 11 (Reuters) – The World Nuclear Association, the main nuclear industry body, said on Friday that it understood the situation at Japan’s Fukushima plant after a massive earthquake was under control, and water was being pumped into its cooling system.

“We understand this situation is under control,” an analyst at the association told Reuters.

The Japanese government had declared an emergency situation around the plant as a precaution and evacuated residents, saying a cooling system was not working.

The analyst said he understood that a back-up battery power system had been brought online after about an hour, and begun pumping water back into the cooling system, where the water level had been falling.
