Unit 3 Spent Fuel Pool; Debris Removal Preparation Begins

assembliesunit31Kyodo News announced yesterday that preparations are underway to remove the debris from the unit 3 spent fuel pool at Fukushima Daiichi. The debris in unit 3’s spent fuel pool is much more excessive and complicated than unit 4. In unit 3’s pool is a tangle of rebar and concrete along with the refueling crane. The refueling crane apparently fell in the pool during the explosion. One end landed on the fuel racks.

Along with the effort to prepare for debris removal workers dropped an underwater camera in the pool after both the main cable and back up cable on the crane failed.
