The multiple nuclide removing system (ALPS) suspended again

One of the three systems of the multiple nuclide removing system called ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) was suspended due to another accident again.

According to Tepco, the inverter of pump had a ground fault. The pump is to send contaminated water to an adsorption tower. The cause is not identified.


The government of Japan has no other plan to resolve the increasing contaminated water problem but freezing water wall. However, none of them has been in the operation yet. Especially ALPS hasn’t been in the full operation since they started the hot test last Spring.

Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

Le système de filtration multi-nucléide ALPS encore arrêté


L’un des trois systèmes de l’appareil de filtration multi-nucléide nommé ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) a encore été arrêté à cause d’un autre accident.
Selon Tepco, l’inverseur de la pompe avait un défaut de mise à la terre. La pompe sert à envoyer l’eau extrêmement radioactive dans une tour d’absorption. La raison n’en est pas établie.

Le gouvernement nippon n’a aucun autre plan pour résoudre le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives qui augmentent en dehors du mur congelé. Néanmoins, aucun d’entre eux n’est encore entré en opération pour l’instant. ALPS en particulier n’a jamais été complètement opérationnel depuis leurs essais à chaud du printemps dernier.

Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
