[Check this out] The slowness of the nuclear robot

On 12/11/2012, Tepco investigated the vent pipe of the  lower part of reactor2 by using the nuclear robot.
Fukushima Diary reported about the robot on 12/3/2012. [Link]
According to the videos released by Tepco, it doesn’t seem useful for decommissioning work of Fukushima plant.
It is too slow.

[A voir !] La lenteur du robot nucléaire

Le 11 décembre 2012, Tepco a exploré l’orifice de la tuyauterie de la partie basse du réacteur 2 à l’aide d’un robot nucléaire.
Le Fukushima Diary a parlé de ce robot le 3 décembre 2012. [Lien]
Selon les vidéos publiées par Tepco, il ne semble pas très efficace pour le travail de démantèlement de la centrale de Fukushima. Il est trop lent.

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.
