Tepco “Tepco can’t maintain the stable supply of Fukushima workers, needs help of the gov and industry”

The shortage of Fukushima worker is one of the most important concerns for decommissioning the plant.

In the press conference of 3/8/2013, Tepco commented they cannot maintain the stable supply of Fukushima workers by themselves.

For the question of TV Asahi about how Tepco is going to obtain the stable supply of Fukushima workers and experts in the long term,

Tepco answered probably this is beyond the control of Tepco. They are going to have to ask the government and educational institution for growing decommissioning experts, and also the entire industry for further supply of nuclear workers.

Since Tepco had a decommissioning management meeting with METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) on 3/7/2013, Tepco has been changing their tone to emphasize decommissioning Fukushima plant is not solely the matter of Tepco, it’s the national matter.

Tepco : On n’arrive pas à tenir stable le nombre de travailleurs pour Fukushima, on a besoin d’une aide du gouv. et de l’industrie


La pénurie en travailleurs pour Fukushima est un des plus importants soucis pour le démantèlement de la centrale.

Au cours de sa conférence de presse du 8 mars 2013, Tepco a déclaré qu’ils ne peuvent pas maintenir stable le recrutement de travailleurs pour Fukushima par eux-mêmes.

A la question de Asahi TV sur comment Tepco va obtenir des travailleurs et des experts à long terme pour Fukushima de façon stable,

Tepco a répondu que c’est sans doute au-delà des possibilités de contrôle de Tepco. Ils vont avoir à demander au gouvernement et aux institution éducatives d’augmenter les experts en démantèlement ainsi qu’à toute l’industrie de fournir d’autres travailleurs du nucléaire.

Depuis que Tepco a tenu un meeting de gestion du démantèlement avec le METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry), le 7 mars 2013, Tepco a changé de ton pour mettre en avant que le démantèlement de la centrale de Fukushima n’est pas une affaire ne concernant que Tepco mais que c’est une affaire nationale.

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.
