Fukushima worker “Frozen wall was originally designed to stand with clay wall but they removed to cut the cost.”

A Fukushima worker commented on Twitter that the frozen water underground wall was poorly re-designed in order to cut the cost. (cf, [Video] Tepco’s building frozen water underground wall [URL])

“・・・ The problem is the frozen water underground wall was originally designed to stand with “Clay wall” to stop groundwater as double and triple shield (but they decided to remove it from the plan).

No, it won’t work. They are trying to cut the cost. If they continue this way, frozen water wall will fail ! ”

Un travailleur de Fukushima : “Le mur congelé était initialement conçu doublé de murs d’argile mais ils les ont enlevés pour faire des économies”


Un travailleur de Fukushima a déclaré sur Twitter que la conception du mur souterrain d’eau congelée a été misérablement revue pour faire des économies. (cf. [Vidéo] Construction du mur souterrain congelé par Tepco)

“・・・ Le problème est que le mur souterrain congelé était à l’origine prévu doublé voire triplé de “murs d’argile” pour bloquer les eaux souterraines (mais ils ont décidé de les enlever).
Non, ça ne marchera pas. Ils essayent de faire des économies. S’ils continuent ainsi, le mur d’eau congelé va échouer ! ”

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.
