[More tank leakage] 100 mSv/h detected beside another tank area of the same type

Following up this article..[300m3 leakage] Fukushima nuclear plant has 350 more tanks of the same type / Rubber sealing instead of welding [URL]


According to Tepco, they detected extremely high level of radiation beside the tank area called H3 on 8/22/2013. This is a different tank area from where Tepco found 300m3 of the leakage, however these are all the same type of the tanks called flange type, which has only rubber sealing instead of welding. These vulnerable tanks were built provisionally and there are 300~350 of this type of the tanks in Fukushima nuclear plant area.

The γ and β dose was 70 ~ 100 mSv/h beside the flange part near the bottom of the tanks. However, they found no water on the ground, which suggests the contaminated water has already been absorbed by the ground.

The water levels of the tanks are 95~97%, which doesn’t show the significant leakage according to Tepco.

[Encore des fuites] 100 mSv/h à côté d’une autre zone de citernes du même type

Selon Tepco, le 22 août 2013 ils ont relevé une radioactivité extrêmement élevée à côté d’une zone de citernes nommée H3.

C’est une zone de citernes différente de celle où ils ont découvert la fuite de 300 m³, toutes sont des citernes d’un type dit “à collerette” qui ne comporte que des joints en caoutchouc au lieu de soudures. Ces citernes fragiles avaient été montées de façon provisoire et il y en a de 300 à 350 de ce type dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.

Les rayonnements γ et β étaient de 70 à 100 mSv/h à côté de la partie à collerette près du bas des citernes. Ils n’ont cependant pas trouvé d’eau au sol, ce qui laisse penser que les eaux extrêmement radioactives de cette fuite ont déjà été absorbées par le sol.
Selon Tepco, les citernes sont toujours remplies à 95~97%, ce qui ne correspond pas une fuite grave.

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.
