u4_1122_assemblies There are 411 spent fuel assemblies left to remove from unit 4 at Fukushima Daiichi. 1122 have been removed as of Monday of this week.

While this is significant progress, the remaining assemblies include some of the heavily damaged ones that will require careful handling, special equipment and come with huge risks. TEPCO has not specifically outlined the equipment or procedures that will be used to remove the more damaged assemblies in the pool.
