The MARICO-2 irradiation test part has been bent onto the in-vessel storage rack approximately 200 mm in horizontal length. As a result, the transfer pot in which the MARICO-2 irradiation test part has been installed can't be handled with the refueling machine. In order to confirm the condition of the bent MARICO-2 irradiation test subassembly and take the appropriate method, MARICO-2 lifting up test was conducted with a simple handling device which gripped the bent wrapper tube and lifted up the MARICO-2 irradiation test part approximately 40 mm. The test result confirmed that the MARICO-2 irradiation test part was stuck in the transfer pot due to the deformation of wrapper tube. Therefore, we will investigate the detail design of the MARICO-2 retrieval device with the fuel transfer pot and inspect whether the MARICO-2 is pulled out from the transfer pot.
