The cover building installation for unit 3 is currently underway. A TEPCO handout from January 17th shows a “stopper” bracket being installed by crane near the spent fuel pool. Additional structural equipment appears to be installed over the pool.
This building will allow for robotic removal of spent fuel. Radiation levels have complicated plans to remove this fuel. The installation of the cylindrical portion of the cover building will require workers to enter the area and manually bolt the cover to the deck structure.
