TOKYO, November 22. /TASS/. The cooling system at the third reactor at the Fukushima II Daini nuclear power plant (NPP) has resumed operations after a brief stop, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said on Tuesday.
No radioactive leaks were registered, the government said. "We are currently conducting a check. No radioactive leaks or increase in the temperature of the rods have been registered," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.
TEPCO said there are 2,544 fuel rods in the pool. Since there is enough water in the pool, the temperature of the rods may be maintained at an acceptable level for a long time, TEPCO said adding that it is very unlikely that any complications may emerge.
The operation of the Fukushima II NPP, just like of most other nuclear facilities in the country, was suspended after the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
An earthquake of 7.3 magnitude struck the north-eastern Japanese prefecture of Fukushima earlier on Tuesday. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the epicenter lay at the depth of 10 kilometers to the east of the prefecture. A tsunami threat has been declared, with waves of up to three meters expected.
