There are some rooms in reactor 3, which Tepco can not disclose

On the daily press conference, Tepco stated there are some doors and rooms in reactor3, which Tepco can not disclose.

It was mentioned in the Q&A section between a freelance journalist Mr. Kino, and Tepco’s spokesman Matsumoto.




Mr. Kino : Since last year, Tepco has been taking some videos of Fukushima plants. Is it possible to disclose all of them ?


Tepco : We already disclose videos and photos of historical water leakage and data as DVD. It’s published at information disclosure center of Toshin building since last Autumn.


Mr. Kino : Tepco entered reactor 3 on 9th of June (6/11 ?), is that video disclosed there too ?


Tepco : We disclosed a part of the video, but we decided not to disclose the rest for the nuclear material protection.


Mr. kino : Was that decision made by Tepco ?


Tepco : Yes we did.


Mr. Kino : Does that mean it was not the nuclear agency to have decided not to disclose it for the issue of nuclear material protection ?


Tepco : The video included the doors that should not be disclosed for the issue of nuclear material protection, so we made that decision by ourselves.


Mr. Kino : The video does probably include the inside of the door, but is that the same ?


Tepco : The video included the door, and the name of the worker, so we should do something for them.


Mr. Kino : Can you disclose those parts after processing ?


Tepco : It takes time to process those parts of the video. We haven’t started anything specific for it yet.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
