Unit 5 continues to operate on shared cooling with the reactor vessel. Graphs of hourly temperature data pulled today show again, the back and forth trend in temperature changes as they shift cooling between the vessel and the pool. The high temperature seen in the RPV graph is 42.5c. Also mentioned today in TEPCO’s daily reports, unit 6 has returned to cooling the spent fuel pool after a short outage to test the fuel gate.
