On 6/15/2012, 3 Tepco workers worked inside of Areva’s facility from 3PM to 5PM. The actual time to be inside of the building of the facility was very short but the highest dosage was 1.33 mSv (gamma ray).(Beta ray was 0 mSv.)
Currently this facility is treated as a back-up system, but the actual Fukushima worker Happy11311 tweeted like these below,
The Areva’s facility is really a burden. Soon nobody can enter the building where the facility is located. I don’t know how much money they spent on the facility, but now it’s too radioactive to maintain though it’s hardly worked.
We haven’t even figured out the details of the entire mechanism of the system since it was installed, I wonder who decided to use that system. I think it was for the political reason… They say they can’t even analyze the sludge yet and it’s still leaking.. It’s really a wasteful exposure… Good night anyway..
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.
