Tepco will run out of 2.6 trillion yen of financial support for compensation payouts by this July

According to Tepco, they received 115.1 billion yen from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund on 6/24/2013.

They received 2.6 trillion yen of financial support for compensation payouts so far but they will run out of the fund by this July to prove the high cost performance of nuclear power.

They reported this below,

Today, we received 115.1 billion yen from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund (hereafter the Fund) based on the revised Special Business Plan (Comprehensive Special Business Plan) approved on February 4, 2013.

This financial support was given in response to our seventeenth request made in order to cover the compensation payouts to be completed by the end of July 2013, as the sum of the compensation received in accordance with the “Act on Contract for Indemnification of Nuclear Damage Compensation” (120 billion yen) and the financial support provided by the Fund (2.6097 trillion yen) will not be sufficient for the total amount of payouts.

With the financial support received from the Fund, we will continue our utmost efforts in implementing the “compensation payouts with courtesy and compassion” in consideration of those afflicted by the nuclear damage.





I see no hope in the old system of Japan.

A partir de juillet il va manquer 2.6 milliards de yens pour les indemnisations à Tepco


Selon Tepco, au 24 juin 2013 ils ont reçu 115,1 milliards de yens du “Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund“.

Ils ont reçu pour le moment 2,6 milliards de yens d’aide financière pour le paiement des indemnisation mais ils vont se retrouver à court courant juillet, ce qui prouve le haut rendement financier de l’énergie nucléaire.

Ils le rapportent ainsi :
“Nous avons reçu 115,1 milliards de yens aujourd’hui du “Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund” (ci-après “le fond” ) sur la base du Special Business Plan révisé (Comprehensive Special Business Plan) et approuvé le 4 février 2013.

Ce soutien financier est venu en réponse à nos soixante dix demandes déposées pour couvrir les budgets d’indemnisation courant jusqu’à la fin juillet 2013 car la somme reçue pour les indemnisations en vertu du “Act on Contract for Indemnification of Nuclear Damage Compensation” (120 milliards de yens) et le soutien financier apporté par le fond (2,6097 milliards de yens) ne seront pas suffisants pour couvrir le montant total des indemnisations.

Avec l’aide financière reçu du fond, nous continueront à consacrer nos plus grands efforts aux paiements des indemnisations envers ceux affectés par les dégâts nucléaires, avec notre plus grands respect et notre plus grande compassion.”


Je ne vois aucun espoir dans l’ancien système japonais

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.
