Tepco’s newly built emergency tank would be full only within 10 days

Now that they can’t reply on the reservoirs, Tepco has the serious shortage of contaminated water storage.

On 5/2/2013, Tepco announced they are installing additional emergency tanks in Fukushima nuclear plant area. However, the capacity is only 4,000 m3.

Considering the fact that 400 m3 of ground water is flowing into the plant every single day, the emergency tanks would be full only within 10 days.

Les nouveaux réservoirs de Tepco construits en urgence seront remplis en seulement 10 jours


A présent qu’ils n’ont plus de répondant en réservoirs, Tepco a une grave pénurie pour le stockage des eaux radioactives.

Le 2 mai 2013, Tepco annonce qu’ils sont en train d’installer des citernes supplémentaires en urgence dans le domaine de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima. Leur capacité ne dépasse cependant pas 4 000 m³.
En considérant le fait que 400 m³ d’eau souterraine inonde la centrale chaque jour, les citernes de secours seront remplies en 10 jours seulement.

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.
