Tepco “What a waste to inject sea water to reactor2”


More and more facts are revealed from the non-released video material of 150 hours record in Tepco.

(cf. Tepco released video of emergency TV meeting “99.3% cut off, 1665 beep sounds, 29 image concealment”)

The head office of Tepco tried to stop Fukushima disaster team led by Yoshida from injecting sea water to cool down reactor2 for being afraid of corrosion. Reactor2 was about to have an explosion following reactor3 at this time. It severely needed coolant material.

In their in-house Fukushima accident investigation report, it’s stated that the disaster headquarters conducted measures to settle down Fukushima disaster to deny the fact that they hesitated to inject sea water to the reactors by trying to reuse the facility.
(cf. Reactor4 had one explosion and 2 fires in March 2011)
Another lie of Tepco has been revealed again.

The conversation recorded in the video shows they were more interested in saving money than saving people’s lives.

In the evening of 3/13/2011.

Tepco head office (Anonymous staff of restoration planning team), “In my “selfish” opinion, it’s such a waste to inject sea water into reactor2 because it corrodes the reactor. Can you inject fresh water to the limit ?”

Yoshida, the former chief of Fukushima plant, “You want to reuse the reactor but it would be too late if we stick to fresh water. Fresh water is not an option. Now we need plenty supply of coolant water. We have to take sea water.”

Tepco head office, “That’s ok for now.”

Tepco head office, “but it still sounds so wasteful. *sardonic laugh* .”




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.
