[NHK] NRA to question TEPCO executives

<Quote> [NHK]

Japan’s nuclear regulatory body is set to question executives of Tokyo Electric Power Company about its policy to ensure safety at its nuclear plants.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority, or NRA, held a meeting on Wednesday and discussed a recent series of problems at nuclear plants operated by TEPCO.
Other troubles and violations of the law have been reported since the nuclear accident in Fukushima in March last year.
On Tuesday last week, water leakage was reported on a line that purifies wastewater at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
NRA’s Chairman Shunichi Tanaka said that his organization will question company executives about the matter.
Tanaka said that TEPCO has a systematic problem and that he cannot dispel concerns over its safety awareness.

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.
