This file photo shows workers wearing protective suits and masks near tanks of radiation contaminated water at Tokyo Electric Power Co's (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the town of Okuma, Fukushima prefecture, on March 6, 2013.

Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said it had fixed the problem around 5:20 pm (0820 GMT), roughly three hours after technicians confirmed that the cooling system was not working for the used fuel pool attached to reactor 3 at the complex.
