AtomInfo.Ru, PUBLISHED 01.03.2021

Work on unloading fuel from the spent fuel pool of Unit No. 3 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (Japan) has been completed.

In total, 52 fresh assemblies and 514 spent assemblies were unloaded.

Work on unloading the pool has been started in April 2019. The last batch of six fuel assemblies was unloaded on February 28, 2021.

Thus, to date, the spent fuel pools of two units (the third and the fourth) have been unloaded.

Work on unloading the pools of the units No. 1/2 will begin in 2024 or later.

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.
