[Too many tanks] Leaked tank can’t be dismantled before the next tank dismantled because of no space among the tanks

Having 300m3 of the highly contaminated water leaked from a tank, Tepco is planning to dismantle the tank.

However Tepco started dismantling the next tank on 9/13/2013, which is located on the South side of the 300m3 leakage tank.

In the press conference of 9/13/2013, Tepco’s spokesman commented they need to dismantle from the next tank otherwise there is no room to dismantle the 300m3 leakage tank. The tanks are over crowded even to dismantle.

[Trop de citernes] Les citernes qui fuient ne peuvent pas être démontées tant que leur voisine ne l’est pas par manque d’espace entre elles


Suite à la fuite des 300 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives d’une citerne,  Tepco prévoit de démonter cette citerne.

Tepco a commencé le 13 septembre 2013 le démontage de la citerne voisine  située au sud de celle-ci.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 13 septembre 2013, le porte-parole de Tepco a déclaré qu’ils doivent démonter la citerne voisine sinon ils n’ont pas la place de démonter celle des 300 m³ de fuite. Les citernes sont trop nombreuses même pour pouvoir les démonter.

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.
