Fukushima worker found a trace of gas oil dripped on the road of the plant
A Tepco employee found a trace of gas oil dripped on the road.
We are concerned about their discharge of contaminated water and the soundness of reactors but this could cause another type of accident such as fire.
They reported this like this below.
At around 1:00 PM on March 5, a TEPCO employee found a trace of gas oil dripping on the road in the power station site. Upon site investigation, it was confirmed that the gas oil filled in a tank truck under gas oil tank inspection had dripped onto the ground. The gas oil dripping from the tank truck has been stopped. The gas oil dripped onto the ground has dried and the area has been covered by sand. The cause of the incident is to be investigated. The incident was reported to Tomioka Fire Department at 1:23 PM on the same day.
Un employé de Tepco a trouvé une trace de gas-oil sur la route.
Nous sommes inquiets de leur déversement d’eau contaminée et sur la fiabilité des réacteurs mais ceci pourrait provoquer un autre type d’accident genre incendie.
Ils le rapportent ainsi :
Le 5 mars vers 13:00, un employé de TEPCO a découvert une trace de gas-oil ayant fuit sur la route de la centrale électrique. Des investigations sur site, il ressort que ce gas-oil remplissait un camion-citerne et que l’inspection de sa citerne en a laissé tomber au sol. Le goutte-à-goutte du camion-citerne a été arrêté. Le gas-oil au sol a séché et l’endroit a été recouvert de sable. La cause de l’incident doit être examinée. L’incident a été rapporté aux pompiers de Tomioka à 13:23 ce même jour.
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.
