Tepco “No major damage was found in torus room of reactor2”
From 4/11 to 4/12/2013, Tepco conducted the torus room investigation of reactor2.
They reported no major damage was found in torus room. However, the water temperature was still higher than atmosphere by 10℃ approximately. The ambient dose was 134 mSv/h on surface of water, where is the closest to suppression chamber.
Tepco : Pas de dégâts majeurs dans la salle du tore du réacteur 2
Les 11 et 12 avril 2013, Tepco a exploré la salle du tore du réacteur 2.
Ils rapportent qu’il n’y a pas de dégât majeur dans la salle du tore. Toutefois, la température de l’eau était toujours plus chaude que celle de l’air d’environ 10°C. La dose ambiante était de 134 mSv/h à la surface de l’eau, ce qui est au plus près de la chambre en surpression.
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.
