The coolant system of reactor3 SFP back on, “No back-up system installed yet ?”

According to Tepco, the coolant system of reactor3 SFP was restarted at 17:20 of 4/5/2013 (JST).

(cf, [Breaking] Coolant system of reactor3 SFP stopped, Tepco is investigating the reason [URL])

Tepco states it is because they caused the ground fault when they were installing the fence to prevent small animals from coming in the power board.

After all, it showed the back-up system of the coolant system has not been installed yet.

Le système de refroidissement de la SFP3 est rétabli : Toujours pas d’alimentation de secours ?


Selon Tepco, le système de refroidissement de la SFP du réacteur 3 a été rétabli le 5 avril 2013 à 17:20 (JST). (cf. [Breaking] Le système de refroidissement de la SFP3 est à l’arrêt, Tepco en recherche la cause)

Tepco affirme que c’est parce qu’ils ont provoqué un effondrement du sol en installant la barrière pour empêcher les petits animaux d’entrer dans le tableau électrique.
Au final, ça a montré que le système d’alimentation de secours pour celui de refroidissement n’est toujours pas mis en place.

Merci de penser à un don.

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.
