[Global Network Military Comprehensive Report] More than eight years have passed since the March 11 East Japan Earthquake, and the latest situation in Fukushima is still touching peoples hearts. Tokyo Electric Power Company began to remove the spent fuel rods (pictured above) from the spent fuel pool of Unit 3 of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station on May 15. This is the first time that the spent fuel rods have been removed from Unit 1 to Unit 3 since the melting of the furnace core occurred. Kyodo News Agency said on the 15th that the work was delayed by more than four years compared with the original plan and was expected to be completed in 2020.
Reported that after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, there are still a large number of spent nuclear fuel rods stored in spent fuel pools, causing huge obstacles to scrap work. There are 566 used and unused nuclear fuel rods in the spent fuel pool of Unit 3. Seven less risky unused fuel rods will be transported to another storage pool in the plant this month, and the removal operation is scheduled to begin formally in June. It is reported that this dangerous operation is carried out by remote control special hoisting equipment.
In order to show concern for the people in the disaster area and confirm the progress of nuclear reactor scrapping operation before the Tokyo Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2020, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited Fukushima every five and a half years on 14th. Japans Nikkei Shimbun reported on the 14th that Abe visited Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and its surrounding environment, and consoled the relevant operation team.
It is reported that Abes last visit to Fukushima was in September 2013, when he toured the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in protective clothing. Unlike before, Abe appeared in a suit and did not even wear a basic protective mask in order to show the outside world that the impact of nuclear radiation was weakening. In response to the waste furnace work, Abe said, The next is the critical moment, the country will take the initiative in the future.
According to Fuji TV, Abe also tried out Fukushima rice dumpling during his trip, which was made from rice produced in Daxiong Ding, Fukushima Prefecture. Abe stressed that efforts should be made to eliminate negative rumors about food produced in Fukushima.
The starting point of the torch relay for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games was set at the football facilities of Japan Village in Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture and Hiroshima Prefecture. Shinzo Abe visited the site before heading to the nuclear power plant, where he has completed his mission as a nuclear power plant accident response base. He will restart as a football facility on the 20th, where he will communicate with the children of the local football team, Shinzo Shimbun reported. In addition, Abe also said on the torch relay: I hope to show the world the opening of the reconstruction Olympics and the situation that Fukushima is advancing reconstruction together with all of you in Fukushima. _Our reporter Xing Xiaojing
