Multiple nuclide removing system ALPS had leakage due to “corrosion” / Only 2 months after test operation started

Following up this article..Over 20 holes found on multiple nuclide removing system ALPS [URL]


On 7/29/2013, Tepco reported to Nuclear Regulation Authority that the holes were made by “corrosion”.

In the beginning, the holes were assumed to be made by welding error.
According to Tepco, chloride ion from seawater, hypochlorous acid, Ferric chlorides in the accumulated water corroded the stainless steel.
The facility had been in the test operation only for 2 months.
Due to this leakage, the entire system of ALPS will be suspended until mid September.



Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

Le système de filtrage multi-nucléides ALPS aurait connu des fuites à cause de “corrosions” / seulement 2 mois après le début des opérations de test

Le 29 juillet 2013, Tepco rapportait à la Nuclear Regulation Authority que les trous avaient été faits par la “corrosion”.

Au départ, les trous étaient supposés être dûs à des erreurs de soudure.
Selon Tepco, les ions chlorure de l’eau de mer, l’acide hypochlorique et les chlorures de fer des eaux accumulées ont corrodé l’acier inox.
L’appareillage aura été en opération de test pendant 2 mois seulement.
Tout le système ALPS est arrêté jusqu’à mi-septembre à cause de ces fuites.

Ce n’est pas la vérité parce que tout le monde y croit. C’est la vérité parce que c’est cohérent et irréfutable.

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.
