Fukushima worker “Tepco had to choose vulnerable flange type of the tanks for the shortage of workers”

Being aware of the leakage risk, Tepco built 350 of flange type of the tanks, which are not welded and vulnerable.

Tepco is stating it was inevitable because they didn’t have time.

However on 8/28/2013, the Fukushima worker Happy11311 commented on Twitter that the shortage of the workers also made Tepco keep making the flange type of the tanks.



Tepco shouldn’t be saying they had to try to manage the contaminated water only by the flange type of the tanks because they had the shortage of workers and the capacity of the storage tanks. It contradicts their own past comment that they had enough of the resource.




You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

Le travailleur de Fukushima : “Tepco devait choisir le type torique fragile pour les citernes à cause de la pénurie en travailleurs”


Bien que conscients du risque de fuites, Tepco a construit 350 citernes de type torique (à collerettes) qui ne sont pas soudées et fragiles.

Tepco affirme que c’était inévitable parce qu’ils n’avaient pas le temps.
Cependant, le 28 août 2013, le travailleur de Fukushima Happy11311 a déclaré sur Twitter que la pénurie en travailleurs a aussi contribué à forcer Tepco à rester sur le type torique pour les citernes.

Tepco ne devrait pas dire qu’ils ont du gérer les eaux extrêmement radioactives uniquement avec des citernes toriques parce qu’ils manquaient de travailleurs et de citernes de stockage. Ça contredit leurs précédentes déclarations disant qu’ils avaient assez de monde.

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.
