Tepco to start the hot test of ALPS, the multiple nuclide purification system on 3/30/2013
Tepco is going to start the hot test on one of the systems of ALPS, the multiple nuclide purification system on 3/30/2013.
Hot testing is to be performed on system A first. The capabilities of the multinuclide removal equipment to remove radioactive materials and to maintain its capability to remove radioactive materials during the hot testing are evaluated.
The progress updates on the hot testing of system A will be reported to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency and the Decommissioning Promotion Council.
The schedule for hot testing of systems B and C and the full-scale operation commencement will be determined upon the progress of hot testing of system A.
Tepco va commencer le 30 mars 2013 le test à chaud de ALPS, le système de purification pluri-nucléides
Tepco va commencer le 30 mars 2013 un test à chaud de l’un des systèmes de ALPS, le système de purification pluri-nucléides.
Tepco déclare :
Un test à chaud sera d’abord effectué sur le système A. On va évaluer la capacité de l’appareil de filtrage multi-nucléides de retirer les matières radioactives et de maintenir cette capacité pendant le test à chaud.
Les mises à jours de l’évolution du test à chaud du système A seront transmises à la Nuclear Regulatory Agency et au Comité pour la Promotion du Démantèlement.
La programmation des tests à chaud des systèmes B et C ainsi que de la mise en œuvre complète seront déterminées par l’évolution des résultats du test à chaud du système A.
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.
