Hamaoka nuclear plant is building Tsunami embankment to restart.
On 12/8/2012, Cabinet office announced the Tsunami caused by possible Nankai Trough earthquake could be 19m high.
Cepco has been planning to build Tsunami embankment of 18m height but changed it to be 22m height.
The additional construction cost would be billions of yen, but the construction ending time is December of 2013 as it has been planned.
La centrale nucléaire de Hamaoka est en train de construire une digue contre les tsunami pour pouvoir redémarrer.
Le 8 décembre 2012, le bureau du Cabinet annonçait que le tsunami provoqué par un possible séisme sur Nankai pourrait atteindre 19 m de haut.
Cepco avait prévu de construire une digue de protection de 18 m de haut mais a revu ses plans pour passer à 22 m.
Le coût de la construction supplémentaire se compte en milliards de yens et la date de remise des travaux est prévue pour décembre 2013.
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.
