Japan is bracing itself for the most dangerous operation at the Fukushima nuclear plant since it was crippled by a quake and tsunami in March 2011. The company running the facility plans to move radioactive fuel rods to safe storage. RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky is in Japan for us. Christina Consolo, Founder and Host of Nuked Radio, doubts that engineers will be able to pull this off – given the level of damage at the plant.

Fukushima plant prepared for uranium and plutonium removal
Nuclear engineers in Japan are preparing to move uranium and plutonium fuel rods at Fukushima, their most difficult and dangerous task since the plant’s runaway reactors were brought under control two years ago.

IAEA experts inspect seawater checks off Fukushima
Two experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency have inspected the procedures for checking radioactivity in seawater off the damaged Fukushima plant.
David Osborn directs the IAEA Environment Laboratories in Monaco and Hartmut Nies is the head of the IAEA Radiometrics Laboratory.
They left Onahama port in Fukushima Prefecture on board a boat for seawater monitoring on Thursday.
The plant’s operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, commissioned the boat to collect water samples within 20 kilometers of the facility.
The inspection took place after Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority and the IAEA agreed to cooperate to bolster the credibility of seawater checks and analysis.
International concern over radioactive contamination of the sea is growing because of repeated leaks of tainted water at the plant.
Osborn said methods to collect seawater samples were appropriate under international standards. He said the IAEA will continue to cooperate if requested by Japan.
On Friday, the team is scheduled to visit a facility where collected samples are analyzed for levels of radioactive substances.
