[Breaking] (Tank leakage) Tepco reused the tanks that went through land subsidence since 2011

In the extraordinary press conference of 8/24/2013, Tepco announced the three leaking tanks have been reused.

Tepco states those three tanks were initially installed in a different area. However, the area had 20cm of land subsidence in July of 2011. The base concrete sank underground.

Instead of abandoning the potentially damaged tanks, they reused them in the new area to end up causing the leakage.

Tepco commented the causality of the leakage and the land subsidence is not verified.





You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

[Breaking] (Tank leakage) Tepco reused the tanks that went through land subsidence since 2011

Au cours de la conférence de presse extraordinaire du 24 août 2013, Tepco annonce que les trois citernes qui fuient sont des recyclées.

Tepco affirme que ces trois citernes étaient installées ailleurs à l’origine, dans une zone qui a subi un effondrement du terrain de 20 cm en juillet 2011. La base en béton s’enfonçait dans le sol.
Au lieu d’abandonner ces citernes sans doute endommagées, ils les ont réutilisées dans une nouvelle zone et ça se finit avec ces fuites.
Tepco déclare que la raison des fuites et de l’effondrement du terrain ne sont pas établies.

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.
