Nuclear Expert “Fukushima plant is now like a swamp of radioactive material due to the contaminated water”

Assistant professor. Koide from Kyoto university commented on a radio program that Fukushima plant area is like a swamp full of radioactive material.

It was broadcast from 7/11 to 7/18/2014.


He talked, in order to stop the nuclear fuel keep melting out the vessels, Tepco had no other choice but cooling by water.

However the plant area is already full of the contaminated water. Now Tepco is literally “swamped”.


Mr. Koide also added that he has been stating Tepco should quit cooling with water since one year ago.

However from Tepco’s assumption, it is impossible to shift to air cooling because they can’t identify the exact locations of molten fuel.

Un expert nucléaire : “La centrale de Fukushima est maintenant comme un marécage radioactif à cause des eaux extrêmement radioactives”

Le professeur assistant Koide de l’université de Kyoto a déclaré au cours d’une émission de radio que le domaine de la centrale de Fukushima est comme un marécage rempli de matières radioactives.
C’est diffusé entre le 11 et le 18 juillet 2014.

Il a dit que pour empêcher que le combustible nucléaire fondu de s’écouler en dehors des enceintes Tepco n’a pas d’autre choix que de refroidir avec de l’eau.
Or le domaine de la centrale est déjà saturé d’eau radioactive. A présent Tepco en est littéralement “submergé”.

M. Koide a aussi ajouté qu’il affirme depuis un an que Tepco devrait arrêter de refroidir avec de l’eau.
Or, selon les affirmations de Tepco, il est impossible de passer au refroidissement par air parce qu’ils ne peuvent identifier les endroits exacts où se trouve le combustible fondu. (cf. Tepco abandonne l’idée du refroidissement par air : L’état des combustibles fondus demeure inconnu)

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.
