Reactor5&6 pump up 6,000 tones of seawater per hour from Fukushima port to discharge to outside of the port
On 9/26/2013, Tepco announced reactor5 and 6 pump up 6,000 tones of seawater from the plant port per hour. The water is used to cool down the reactors, and it’s discharged to the outside of the plant port.
In the presentation to IOC, Japanese prime minister Abe stated the contaminated water is completely blocked in Fukushima nuclear plant port, but it turned out to be false.
(cf, JP PM Abe to IOC “Contaminated water is completely blocked”→Tepco “Tritium can’t be blocked” [URL])
From Tepco’s own report published this August, it was 7,000 m3/hour instead of 6,000 tones/hour.
Le 26 septembre 2013, Tepco déclarait que les réacteurs 5 et 6 pompaient 6 000 tonnes d’eau de mer par heure dans le port de la centrale. Cette eau sert à refroidir les réacteurs et elle est déversée en mer à l’extérieur du port.

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.
