[Level.7 Plus] Nuclear Regulation Authority classified H4 tank area leakage as INES Level.3

About 300m3 leakage from H4 tank area, Nuclear Regulation Authority classified the accident as INES (International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale) Level. 3.


Nuclear Regulation Authority inquired IAEA if it is appropriate to apply the INES scale assessment to those facilities (i.e., the storage tank) that were established as emergency-response measures, in the same manner as nuclear power plants built under the concept of defence-in-depth.

Having IAEA agreed to rating it as Level.3, Fukushima nuclear accident is now assessed as Level.7 and Level.3.

[Niveau 7 Plus] La Nuclear Regulation Authority a classé la zone de la fuite de la citerne H4 au niveau INES 3


Concernant les 300 m³ de la fuite dans la zone H4 des citernes, la Nuclear Regulation Authority a classé l’accident comme niveau 3 INES (International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale = Échelle Internationale des Évènements Radioactifs et Nucléaires).

La Nuclear Regulation Authority a demandé à l’AIEA s’il était approprié d’appliquer l’échelle INES à ces équipements (i.e. les citernes de stockage) qui ont été montés en tant que mesure d’urgence de la même façon que les centrales nucléaires sont construites sous le concept de haute sécurité.

Avec cet accord de l’AIEA de le classer en niveau 3, l’accident nucléaire de Fukushima est à présent classé en niveau 7 et niveau 3.

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.
