Reactor6 temperature increasing after restarting coolant system, 27.6℃ → 28.0℃

Following up this article..Reactor 6 coolant system accidentally stopped / Tepco “can restart in 1 hour” → took 2 hours, reason not verified [URL]

According to Tepco, the reactor6 temperature is increasing even after restarting the coolant system.

11:00 AM, 27.1 ℃

12:00 PM, 27.6 ℃ (← Coolant system restarted)

1:00 PM, 28.0 ℃


Tepco is commenting the temperature is stable.



Don’t be their accomplice.

    High radiation levels found near area where steam spotted at Fukushima plant

    July 24, 2013


    High levels of radiation were detected near an area where steam was spotted July 23 at the No. 3 reactor building of the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant operator, said.

    TEPCO gave a measurement of 562 millisieverts per hour.

    The Nuclear Regulation Authority, the government’s nuclear industry watchdog, instructed TEPCO to investigate further because the dose level is high.

    What appeared to be steam was spotted near an equipment storage pool on the fifth floor of the No. 3 reactor building around 9:05 a.m. There was a similar occurrence on the morning of July 18.

    In the latest incident, TEPCO measured radiation levels in 24 other locations around the fifth floor of the reactor building. The maximum dose was 2,170 millisieverts per hour, while the minimum was 137 millisieverts per hour.

    TEPCO officials said rain that fell on the night of July 22 likely made its way to around the No. 3 reactor’s containment vessel and evaporated due to heat from nuclear fuel that remained trapped.

    Workers have not been able to approach the fifth floor of the No. 3 reactor building due to high levels of radiation following an explosion after the March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami.

    TEPCO has been removing rubble with remote-controlled cranes at the building.

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.
