AtomInfo.Ru, PUBLISHED 06.01.2021

The fuel unloading from the spent fuel pool is continuing at the Unit 3 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (Japan).

According to TEPCO, as of January 06, 2021, all fresh assemblies that were there at the time of the accident (52 assemblies), as well as 409 out of 514 spent assemblies, were unloaded.

Thus, a total of 461 assemblies were unloaded from the SFP-3. Of these, 14 assemblies were unloaded during the period from December 26 to January 06.

This critical analysis of the history, state, and prospects of development of modern nuclear technologies shows that nuclear energy market has practically monopolized the design and construction of only one type of reactors (95% of NPPs under construction use pressurized water reactors), which necessitates training of focused specialists involved in the construction and operation of those nuclear power plants.

To sum up, we can say that from above we see a set of tasks and areas of activity that must be solved and developed to build the nuclear power of the future, and from below we see an understanding of how it can be done.
