Fukushima Worker “Significantly high level of contamination may spread in the process of decommissioning”

Actual Fukushima worker Happy11311 showed his concern about the secondary contamination related to the plant decommissioning.


Contamination is still spreading around from Fukushima plant. Even if they close the blowout panel of reactor2, cover reactor3 and 4, the contamination level will never be zero in the process of decommissioning. One of the biggest risks is dismantling the stack, it may end up spreading significantly high level of the contamination again. We still have a long way to go.

Fukushima Worker “Significantly high level of contamination may spread in the process of decommissioning”

Le travailleur de Fukushima, Happy11311, montre son inquiétude sur la contamination secondaire liée au démantèlement.

La contamination diffuse toujours autour de la centrale de Fukushima. Même quand ils ferment le panneau anti-explosion du réacteur 2, couvrent les réacteurs 3 et 4, le niveau de la contamination ne redescendra jamais à zéro pendant le démantèlement. Un des plus grands risques sera dans le démantèlement de la pile, ça pourra finir par disperser encore des niveaux de radioactivité considérablement élevés. La route qu’il nous reste à faire est toujours très longue.

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.
