Japan : French experts to help remove radioactive water

Via NHK News :

" France says it will send 3 more nuclear experts to Japan to help with efforts to remove highly radioactive water from the troubled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Two other French experts are already in Japan and holding talks with the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company. The 5 are from French-based AREVA, one of the world's biggest nuclear energy firms.

They will help eliminate the polluted water that is hampering efforts to restore the plant's cooling functions.

This is the first time that France, the world's second largest operator of nuclear plants, has dispatched nuclear experts to Japan.

Soon after the accident occurred in Fukushima, France expressed its readiness to assist Japan, supplying radiation measuring vehicles and protective clothing."
