OKUMA, Japan (Reuters) – At the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant north of Tokyo, workers in protective suits are still removing radioactive material from reactors that melted down after an earthquake and tsunami knocked out its power and cooling nearly nine years ago.

Workers are seen near storage tanks for radioactive water at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s (TEPCO) tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Okuma town, Fukushima prefecture, 

On an exclusive tour of the plant, spread over 3.5 million square meters (865 acres), Reuters witnessed giant remote-controlled cranes dismantling an exhaust tower and other structures in a highly radioactive zone while spent fuel was removed from a reactor.

Officials from Tokyo Electric, which owns the plant, also showed new tanks to hold increasing amounts of contaminated water.

About 4,000 workers are tackling the cleanup, many wearing protective gear, although more than 90% of the plant is deemed to have so little radioactivity that no extra precautions are needed. Photography was highly restricted and no conversations were allowed with the workers.

Work to dismantle the plant has taken nearly a decade so far, but with Tokyo due to host the Olympics this summer – including some events less than 60 km (38 miles) from the power station – there has been renewed focus on safeguarding the venues.

  1. I found this when I was trying to figure out why some of the Republicans seemed to want to cover-up more than Trump himself.  Plus, anyway, Pelosi has vineyards impacted by Fukushima.  There is a paper discussing how fallout from Fuku and/or Chernobyl impacted vineyards. Trump didn’t do TPP but did this that apparently by-passes Congress, unlike TPP.  I haven’t read it enough to figure out how it impacts Fukushima food. I found it whilte researching US food exports to Russia, in particular chicken exports.
