Fukushima Unit 3 Crane Leaks Oil Into Spent Fuel Pool

u3_sfp_debris_3_2014The refueling crane that crashed into the spent fuel pool of unit 3 has begun leaking oil into the pool. Work is underway to remove the crane from the pool, this may have caused the leak. TEPCO shut off the cooling system for the pool yesterday and reports today that the temperatures in the pool have not increased in any significant way. They have not declared a plan to deal with the oil in the pool yet. Having the oil mix further into the water could cause more problems for water quality and fuel integrity.
