NHK: Fuel rods to be removed from No. 4 fuel pool — Test date not revealed ‘for security reasons’
NHK: Fuel rods to be removed from No. 4 fuel pool — Concerns about sea water damage — Special container so fuel doesn’t going critical — Test date not revealed ‘for security reasons’

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant will soon start test runs for removing fuel rods from a storage pool of the No. 4 reactor.
Removal Procedure

A crane will be used to pull each of the 2 rods out of the pool, and then place them in a special container on the 5th floor of the reactor building.

The container will prevent the fuel from going critical.

Another crane will lower the container to the ground, where a truck will take it to a facility called a “common pool.”

[...]

Four cables will be used to prevent the container from falling.
Damage to Metal Container? (See: Onagawa)

TEPCO will also check if there’s any damage to the metal container used to store the fuel rods. This is a concern because seawater was used to cool the reactor after last year’s accident.
Security Reasons

TEPCO says it cannot reveal the date of the test for security reasons.
