Currently no decommissioning work is on-going in the crippled reactor buildings of Fukushima plant.


A Fukushima worker Happy11311 posted on Twitter that significant part of the workers had summer vacation from 8/9/2014.

In most of the cases, Japanese summer vacation lasts for 1 week.


Happy11311 states some workers are remaining in the plant to work with sub-drain system and frozen wall etc..

This week, Tepco announced they are planning to pump up highly contaminated water from this sub-drain system to discharge to the Pacific.

Il ne se passe plus rien dans les bâtiments des réacteurs de Fukushima en raison des “vacances d’été”

Il n’y a actuellement plus aucun travail de démantèlement dans les bâtiments dévastés de la centrale de Fukushima.

Le travailleur de Fukushima, Happy11311, a publié sur Twitter qu’une grande partie des travailleurs sont en vacances à partir du 9 août 2014. En général, les vacances d’été des japonais durent une semaine.

Happy11311 affirme qu’il reste quelques travailleurs dans la centrale pour travailler sur le système des sous-réseaux d’évacuation, des murs congelés, etc.

Cette semaine, Tepco a déclaré qu’ils prévoient de pomper puis de déverser dans le Pacifique les eaux extrêmement radioactives du système de sous-drainage. (cf. Tepco prévoit de déverser les eaux souterraines hautement radioactives autour des réacteurs où la dérivation et les murs congelés ne donnent rien)

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.
