Fukushima worker “Multiple nuclide removing system of contaminated water is not functioning as designed”

Fukushima Diary is featuring the former Fukushima worker Happy11311.

(cf, Fukushima worker “Tepco needs to fill PCV with water to remove molten fuel but it’s leaking from somewhere unknown” [URL])

(cf, Fukushima worker “Tepco may ask IAEA or WHO for help to discharge contaminated water to the sea [URL])

It shouldn’t focus on solely one source, however, because these comments are very important, Fukushima Diary would like to report one more comment for last.



(About discharge of contaminated water to the sea), probably Tepco and Japanese government are thinking about how to make people understand the situation. This is an ethical issue. What concerns me is that the multiple nuclide system ALPS is not effective as designed.



According to Happy11311, Tepco was planning to discharge contaminated water to the sea on the assumption that the multiple nuclide removing system ALPS works as effectively as designed.

L’ancien de Fukushima : “Le système de filtrage multi-nucléides des eaux extrêmement radioactives ne fonctionne pas comme annoncé”


Le Fukushima Diary met en vedette l’ancien travailleur de Fukushima, Happy11311 :

(cf. L’ancien de Fukushima : “Tepco doit remplir la PCV avec de l’eau pour retirer les combustibles fondus mais elles fuient par des endroits inconnus”)
(cf. L’ancien de Fukushima : “Tepco peut demander de l’aide à l’AIEA ou à l’OMS pour déverser en mer les eaux contaminées)

On ne doit pas se concentrer sur une seule source, cependant, parce que ses déclarations sont très importantes, le Fukushima Diary voudrais vous en présenter une dernière de plus :

(Sur les eaux contaminées déversées en mer), Tepco et le gouvernement japonais pensent sans doute à comment faire comprendre la situation aux gens. C’est un problème éthique. Ce qui m’inquiète, c’est que le système multi-nucléide ALPS n’est pas efficace tel qu’il est conçu.

Selon Happy11311, Tepco prévoyait de déverser en mer les eaux radioactives sur l’hypothèse que le système multi-nucléides ALPS fonctionnait aussi efficacement que prévu.

Merci pour votre aide.
Vos dons vont à présent servir à la prochaine recherche, l’établissement d’un village japonais en Roumanie. (560 €)

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.
