Power is back on at all spent fuel pools at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after a two-day outage scare, the Japanese power producer TEPCO has announced.
Fukushimaâs spent fuel cooling pools at reactors 1, 3 and 4 lost power late on Monday, then gradually came back online. Power was restored to the last pool early Wednesday morning. The cause of the outage is still unknown, but according to Kyodo news agency it may have been caused by a faulty power switchboard, the BBC reports.
