The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it has transferred the first batch of nuclear fuel from one of the damaged reactor buildings to a storage facility. Each of the plant’s reactor buildings has a fuel storage pool inside, separate from the reactors that suffered meltdowns. The plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, began removing nuclear fuel assemblies from the storage pool at the No.3 reactor building on April 15. Among its 566 fuel assemblies, 52 are unspent and 514 are spent units.
