IAEA Starts Review of Work to Scrap Fukushima Reactors
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A team of experts formed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) began Monday reviewing the efforts to scrap the crippled reactors at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
The IAEA team will focus on the management of the radioactive water buildup at the site and fuel removal work that has just started at a pool inside the damaged No. 4 reactor building, Kyodo quoted team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo as saying in Tokyo.
“The removal of the spent fuel is an essential activity toward decommissioning,” Lentijo said. The full process that TEPCO has developed will be reviewed, as well as all the precautions adopted to develop these activities in a safe way, RT reported.
