[Reader’s post] “Common spent fuel pool is more heated than SFP of reactor1, 2, 3”
On 12/19/2012, Fukushima Diary reported “Common usage pool may be more heated than SFP of reactor3″. [Link]
The source added the temperature increasing rate in SFP of reactor 1 and 2 as well. The result shows the temperature increasing rate of common spent fuel is the higher than reactor 1, 2 and 3. The one in reactor4 shows the highest increasing rate, but it was in October, where all the other data were taken in November and December.
Le 19 décembre 2012, le Fukushima Diary a rapporté que la piscine de dégagement commune pourrait être plus chaude que la piscine des combustibles usagés (SFP) du réacteur 3. [Lien]
La source a ajouté que la température augmente aussi dans les SFP des réacteurs 1 et 2. Les résultats montrent que la température monte plus vite dans la piscine de dégagement commune que dans celles des réacteurs 1, 2 et 3. Celle du réacteur 4 présente l’augmentation la plus forte mais c’était en octobre alors que les autres datent de novembre et décembre.
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.
