Fukushima Spent Fuel Progress Report

Spent fuel processing at Fukushima has made some new progress though much work remains with higher risk work being left for later. 47.4% of the spent fuel in unit 4’s spent fuel pool has been removed. This is a positive step towards bringing that unit to a safer state. 48.2% of the temporary cask storage on site has been filled as they remove spent fuel from the common pool to make room. The common pool is at 89.2% full. It is critical that they continue to remove older spent fuel from this facility to make room for the unit 4 fuel.
