Enformable, Nov. 14, 2012: TEPCO has released designs for a cover to construct around the crippled Unit 3 reactor building in order to allow the utility to remove fuel rods from the spent fuel pool by crane. [...] The building will also house ventilation to reduce the radioactive materials being released into the atmosphere.
