Unit 3 Fukushima Daiichi Debris Removal Near Completion

Debris removal has been ongoing during the last month as TEPCO attempted to distract the public with the leaking ponds issue. Photos below from the TEPCO webcam show the rapid progress in just the last few weeks. The image in early June shows the back wall structure is still in place and much of the roof trussing debris was still on top of the refueling floor. About 50% of the trussing and debris is gone compared to earlier in the month. Half of the back wall frame is removed.

TEPCO has reported little or nothing since they did beam removal work on the spent fuel pool months ago. As unit 4 was cleared off TEPCO provided multiple updates and images of the complicated work to removal the refueling floor and reactor components. With unit 3 it has been all but absent.
