|Loading fuel in a reactor core|
Rare insignt of the fresh nuclear fuel loaded in the core of a reactor at the Civaux nuclear power plant in french Poitou-Charentes. The lid of the tank was opened, and one can see at the bottom the mosaic of fuel assemblies already in place, while a robot introduces a new assembly. All handling are done under water.
