Fuel removal from Fukushima reactor may be delayed

Fuel removal from Fukushima reactor may be delayed | 28 June 2018 | The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says work to remove spent nuclear fuel from a cooling pool at one of its reactors may be delayed. A total of 566 fuel units remain in the cooling pool at the No.3 reactor, which suffered a meltdown in 2011. Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, planned to start removing the fuel as early as this autumn, as part of the decommissioning of the nuclear complex. But on Thursday, TEPCO revealed the control board of a crane used in the removal malfunctioned during a test run last month.
