TEPCO making plans to remove spent fuel from Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 4

Author: No Comments Share:


TEPCO plans to start removing spent fuel from the Unit 4 reactor building starting in November of this year, and has already started bringing in cranes and heavy equipment for the removal work.  With over 1,500 spent fuel assemblies resting in a building visibly decimated by the hydrogen explosion, more spent fuel is stored at the Unit 4 reactor than at any other reactor building on-site.

The workers plan to start the removal process in November, but it will take over a year for the work to be completed.
