While TEPCO is removing contaminated water from reactor 2 of the troubled Fukushima-1 nuclear plant and after successful tests has started spraying resin to prevent the spread of radioactive dust, experts fear deterioration of the crisis.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility operator says it hopes to finish removal of radioactive debris from the plant’s territory by July. The company has already created a map showing the levels of radioactivity in different parts of the facility.
The operator of Fukushima-1 has started transferring highly radioactive water from the nuclear power plant’s basement to a waste processing facility to prevent ocean contamination and implement the “cold shutdown” plan.
The operator of Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant aims to restore the cooling systems of the reactors at the troubled facility within three months and achieve “cold shutdown” of the plant in six to nine months.
