Following up this article.. Tepco “Radiation analysis team mostly consists of outsourced staff” [URL]


All the analysts were outsourced staff, Tepco stated in the press conference of 2/12/2014.

60 staff are actually working in 4 laboratories, according to Tepco. However, none of Tepco employees are working there even as a supervisor.


As a guideline, high level of contaminated water was supposed to be diluted to avoid out-scale of the measurement instruments. However the way of diluting samples differed from analysts.


It revealed the fact that even the contamination data, which is the most important thing to understand the accident level, is not properly managed to collect.

Fukushima decommissioning doesn’t seem to be supervised by neither Tepco nor Japanese government.

Article lié : Tepco : “Les analyses de la radioactivité sont essentiellement faites par des équipes externes”

Tepco a déclaré au cours de la conférence de presse du 12 février 2014 que tous les analystes de la radioactivité étaient des sous-traitants.
Selon Tepco, en fait 60 personnes travaillent dans 4 laboratoires. Néanmoins, il n’y a aucun employé de Tepco parmi eux, même comme superviseur.

Pour rappel, les eaux extrêmement radioactives doivent être diluées pour éviter que les instruments sortent de leurs échelles de mesure. Or, la façon de diluer les échantillons n’était pas la même selon les analystes.

Ça révèle le fait que même la collecte des données sur la radioactivité, chose la plus importante pour comprendre la gravité de l’accident, n’est pas correctement gérée.
Le démantèlement de Fukushima semble n’être dirigé ni par Tepco, ni par le gouvernement japonais.

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.
