In order to prevent the corrosion and break of structural materials of Unit 3 Spent Fuel Pool (SFP) at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in mid term, we plan to implement the desalinating. Prior to the desalinating, we conducted the removal of radioactive materials from Unit 3 SFP from January 14, 2012 and completed on March 1, 2012.
As a result of the removal work of radioactive materials, it was confirmed that the radioactivity concentration was reduced about one hundredth compared to the one before the removal work.
Hereafter, we plan to conduct the desalinating by the Desalination Facilities (reverse osmosis membrane (RO) and electrodialysis (ED)).
