【PDF】 Nagoya University press release on Fukushima Daiichi unit 2 [ja]

  • Nagoya Uni “Significantly small amount of fuel remaining in Reactor 2” / No announcement about underground (Fukushima Diary, Mar. 21 2015)

    On 3/20/2015, Nagoya University announced they SAW the remaining nuclear fuel in Reactor 2 is significantly less than Reactor 5, which proved meltdown also occurred in Reactor 2.

    They have been “scanning” Reactor 2 and Reactor 5, which is believed to have sound nuclear fuel inside the Reactor core, since last Spring by using muon detecting system.

    As a result, they confirmed the remaining fuel is significantly less in Reactor 2 than Reactor 5, but need the further analysis for the precise amount of fuel remaining in Reactor core.

    From their report published by now, it seems like there is nothing remaining at least in reactor pressure vessel.

    Though they state it is possible to install the muon detecting system underground to scan the underground situation, the released report only mentioned the part above the ground.
