NRA “Tepco’s nuclide analysis may have a significant error”

On 8/12/2013, NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) stated Tepco’s radioactive material measurement may contain the significant error.

They held the working group meeting for the contaminated water in Fukushima nuclear plant on 8/12/2013.

In this meeting, NRA pointed out the fact that β nuclide readings and other readings are sometimes represented to be lower than detectable level in Tepco’s data. However, it’s nearly impossible to happen from the past trend. It is rational to think Tepco’s analysis has some significant error in its process.

No resolution was suggested by Tepco.



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

NRA : “Les analyses de radioactivité de Tepco peuvent comporter de graves erreurs”


Le 12 août 2013, la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) a affirmé que les mesures de la radioactivité de Tepco peuvent comporter de graves erreurs.

Une réunion du groupe de travail sur les eaux extrêmement radioactives s’est tenue le 12 août 2013.
Au cours de cette réunion, la NRA a pointé le fait que les relevés en β nucléides et d’autres relevés de Tepco sont parfois cotés comme en-dessous de la limite détectable. Or, c’est pratiquement impossible en suivant l’évolution passée. Il est logique de penser que les analyses de Tepco comportent des erreurs graves dans leur processus de réalisation.
Tepco n’a fait aucune suggestion.

Ce n’est pas la vérité parce que tout le monde le 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.
