TEPCO Begins Installing Unit 3 Defueling Building

unit3_defueling_building_install_160412_01TEPCO began installing the first sections of the defueling building this week. The decking is the first portion of what will be a cover building to allow the removal of spent fuel from unit 3’s spent fuel pool. The defueling building is built in a modular fashion to allow for mostly remote assembly. The actual removal will also be done remotely due to the high radiation levels on unit 3’s remaining refueling floor level.

Further details can be found in our 2015 report here.
