Japan Nuclear Operator Conducts Check on Risky Unit



Japan Nuclear Operator Conducts Check on Risky Unit 25 May 2012 The operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power plant said it took extra steps this week to check the soundness of one of its riskiest reactor buildings, in response to growing public unease over the possibility of further accidents at the facility. The investigation-the first of its kind to take place at Fukushima Daiichi since three reactors spun out of control 14 months ago-also underscores how unclear conditions at the plant remain, and how deep the distrust in Japan’s nuclear industry runs. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Friday that it conducted its first on-the-ground look at the condition of Fukushima Daiichi’s Unit 4 reactor building, which houses in a pool of water at its top what is seen as the most hazardous collection of fuel rods in the plant.
