July 15, 2011: Restoration in progress
Neutron scattering instruments owned by ISSP, U. Tokyo, Tohoku U, and Kyoto U. at JRR-3, JAEA, Tokai, were damaged by North-East Japan Earthquake (Mar. 11, 2011) are now under restoration. Ventiation of the Reactor Hall and Guide Hall was recovered on May 12. Since then, we checked dameges of instruments one by one and fixed the problems. Most of the instruments seem to be fine without serious damage. Restration of the JRR-3 building and related infrastructure will be finished by October, followed by inspection to reissue the licence. We expect that JRR-3 will start to operate next Feburary.
