Following up this article.. [Video] Reactor1 confirmed leaking out the coolant water / 2.0 Sv/h [URL]


On 5/27/2014, Tepco identified one of the coolant water leaking parts on reactor1 primary containment vessel.

This is the first time for them to find one of the actual leaking part on reactor1. The investigation was implemented by a robot due to the high level of radiation (the video below).


The leaking part was the vacuum break pipe to connect vessel to a coolant system called suppression chamber.

The water was confirmed leaking from a joint part. The joint part looked severely rusted already (the pictures above).

The radioactive density and the volume of leaking water are not announced.

[Vidéo] Tepco identifie l’origine d’une des fuites de l’enceinte du réacteur 1 : Les tuyaux sont rouillés et ils commencent à s’en désintégrer

Le 27 mai 2014, Tepco identifie l’origine de l’une des fuites de l’enceinte de confinement primaire du réacteur 1.
C’est la première fois qu’ils trouvent l’origine de l’une des réelles fuites du réacteur 1. L’investigation a été effectuée par un robot à cause du très haut niveau de radioactivité (la vidéo ci-dessous).

La fuite est sur le tuyau de rupture de vide qui relie l’enceinte à un système de refroidissement  nommé chambre en surpression.
L’eau fuit à l’endroit du joint. Cet endroit a l’air d’être déjà profondément rouillée (photos i-dessus).
Le niveau de radioactivité et le volume de la fuite ne sont pas communiqués.

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.
