Tokyo Electric Power Laid 1 Kilometer of New Power Line

March 17 (Bloomberg) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co. engineers have laid a new power line to the stricken No. 2 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the International Atomic Energy Agency said.

The new line, measuring about one kilometer (0.6 miles), aims to restore power to the plant’s cooling systems, which were knocked out by the earthquake and tsunami March 11, a company official earlier told a press conference on NHK.

Engineers plan to reconnect power after they finish spraying water to cool the Unit 3 reactor building, the IAEA said, citing Japanese authorities. Spraying temporarily stopped at 10:09 local time, the agency said on its website.
