Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant "Fuel Debris" Extraction "The Site Should Be Focused" October 11, 5:05

A national specialized agency that is considering the technical policy for decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station will work in an environment where the inside cannot be fully grasped for the removal of "fuel debris" scheduled to start next year. Therefore, we have announced a strategic plan that emphasizes the perspective and feeling of the site.

The "Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Support Organization" has summarized the technical policy of decommissioning at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant every year, and recently announced the "Strategic Plan".

In this, he touched on the plan to remove the so-called "fuel debris" from which nuclear fuel had melted and solidified from Unit 2 next year, and recognized that the work would be done in an environment where the radiation level at the site is high and the inside cannot be fully grasped. I point out that it should be.

On top of that, in order to ensure safety, work should be carried out with an emphasis on the eyes and feelings of the people at the site, such as those who operate the equipment for extracting debris, and the information obtained at the site should be used for equipment related to decommissioning. It is recommended to reflect it in the design.

This strategic plan will be utilized in the medium- to long-term decommissioning work plan for the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant created by TEPCO.
