Japan : TEPCO to resume removing contaminated water

From NHK News :

" The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant expects to resume the removal of highly radioactive water as early as Tuesday, after a one-day delay due to a strong aftershock.

Tokyo Electric Power Company will begin pumping contaminated water from the Number 2 reactor and transferring it to a condenser, after checking the safety of equipment.

The radioactive water has been hampering work to restore cooling functions in the damaged reactors.

TEPCO says it also resumed injecting nitrogen into the containment vessel of the No.1 reactor late on Monday night.

The work is aimed at preventing further hydrogen explosions. It was suspended because of the strong quake earlier in the day."
