[Give up]Nuclear Regulation Authority “It’s impossible to transfer all the water from flange type tanks to new tanks”

On 8/27/2013, Nuclear Regulation Authority held the working group meeting about the contaminated water problem.

In this meeting, they concluded it is impossible to transfer all the contaminated water from the flange type tanks to the safer tanks promptly due to the shortage of the storage facility.

Currently there are over 300 flange type tanks, but because they are not welded, they can leak easily.

The working group commented it is more realistic to keep the spare storage in case of additional leakage.




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

[Abandon] La Nuclear Regulation Authority : “Il est impossible de transvaser l’eau de toutes les citernes toriques dans de nouvelles”


Le 27 août 2013, s’est tenue une réunion du groupe de travail de la Nuclear Regulation Authority sur le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives.

Pendant cette réunion, ils ont conclus qu’il est impossible de transvaser rapidement l’eau de toutes les citernes de type à joints toriques (à collerettes) dans de nouvelles citernes plus sures à cause de la pénurie en équipements de stockage.
On a actuellement plus de 300 citernes de ce type qui fuient très facilement parce qu’elles ne sont pas soudées.
Le groupe de travail a déclaré qu’il est plus réaliste de réserver l’espace de stockage pour d’autres fuites.


Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

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.
