620 mSv/h on the first floor of reactor 3

Having Xenon measured at reactor 2, Tepco made up a new word in the academic world just for reacor 2,
which is “temporary spontaneous fossil”.

They didn’t deny the risk for reactor 1 and 3,but they actually didn’t even set filters for the container vessels.

11/5/2011,Tepco ended the press conference within 6 minutes.

In the fruitful conference,they tried to appeal their success but they ended up showing the actual contamination situation at the plant area.

To set the “first” air purifying filter at reactor 3,they swept debris by robots on 11/2 ,3 /2011.

However,even after the decontamination,they measured 210 mSv/h and 620 mSv/h on the first floor of reactor 3.

They admitted they would take more 2 months to set the filters.


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.
