Fukushima Unit 3 Spent Fuel Pool Debris Removal Update

U3_pool_progressMETI has reported some progress and a plan for removing debris out of the unit 3 spent fuel pool. Initial work already in progress includes removal of the steel pool cover and then any rebar than can easily be removed, this work is already underway. Then work will progress in this order:

1.(④, ⑤, ⑥, ⑦) removal mast , roof truss material
2 . Removal of FHM (fuel handling machine) (⑧)
3 . Removal of FHM west end track (⑨)
4 . Debris removal of the cask area (⑩)

They will also eventually attempt to retrieve the camera that was dropped into the pool in late 2013. One of the first items to be removed will be the fuel handling machine mast that was dislodged and dropped in the pool during the initial removal of debris above the pool.
